Why is your doctor unable to diagnose your condition?

There is little else as frustrating as going to visit your doctor in New York, only to leave your appointment with no diagnosis and no solution. Unfortunately, this issue is not uncommon as your symptoms may not fit a standard set of symptoms that your doctor may be looking for to identify a working treatment plan. So, it leaves the question, why was your doctor unable to make a conclusive decision about what you are experiencing?

Being aware of the risks of surgery can keep you safer

If you are preparing to receive surgery in New York, your doctor has probably given you a set of strict instructions to follow as you anticipate your treatment. Following these instructions closely is imperative to your safety as you undergo surgery and go forward with your recovery. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we have helped victims of surgical errors to work toward getting compensation for their injuries. 

A look at the effects of emotional abuse on the elderly

When families in New York transition their aging loved one to a nursing home facility, they often go to great lengths to guarantee that the establishment they have selected is one that will be a comfortable fit and is capable of providing thorough and compassionate care. Unfortunately, there are times when due to poor training, inadequate focus or even blatant ignorance, policies are violated that put the health, safety and wellbeing of the residents at risk. 

Artificial surgical intelligence could reduce mistakes

While doctors are not free of human error, many people in New York fully trust and rely on their medical provider to give them a thorough diagnosis and prescribe a treatment plan that will address their physical needs and medical history. However, there are still stories in the news every so often that tell disconcerting stories of patients that have been injured, some severely, because of a mistake made by a medical professional. 

What are the risks of IVC filters?

Deep venous thrombosis is a common issue that could lead to serious health risks if left untreated. There are generally two ways to treat this condition. According to the National Institutes of Health, if you have DVT, the doctor may use anticoagulation or an IVC filter. You may have heard commercials about IVC filter issues in New York and wonder if they really are safe.

Can technology increase risks in the hospital?

Technology is everywhere in New York. You may even see it used in hospitals. Often this use is in equipment, but in some cases, you may also see hospital staff using handheld devices. The use of handheld devices, such as smartphones, is not completely accepted. MedCrave explains that they are becoming popular due to medical apps that are now available.

What are Never Events?

A medical doctor and former CEO of the National Quality Forum coined the term "Never Event" in 2001, to describe medical errors that are particularly shocking in nature. Particularly shocking errors include surgery at the wrong site, food meant for stomach tubes going into test tubes, air bubbles going into IV catheters or, in short, any incident that should never have occurred. New York Never Events require extreme neglect to happen, hence the reason they are so rare.

What is adult neglect?

One of the main reasons you put a loved one in a New York nursing home is so he or she will have constant care and get the proper attention to stay healthy and safe. When you discover that the nursing home has been negligent in their duties, it can be very upsetting. Your best defense against neglect issues to understand what constitutes neglect and the signs to watch for.
