Advocating for your loved one inside of a nursing home

Once you have decided to follow through with putting your loved one inside of a nursing home in New York, you may feel a sense of urgency to continue to protect his or her well-being. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we understand the hesitations that people have when turning the care of their elderly family member over to someone else. 

Getting prepared for a surgical procedure

When people first receive word that they need to have surgery, the initial thought may be daunting and unsettling. As they proceed with their treatment plan, people should be in regular communication with their health care provider in New York to receive information about what the surgery will entail, what they should anticipate in terms of recovery and how the surgery will contribute to accomplishing the objective of improving their well-being. 

What are the signs that your loved one is being mistreated?

When you make a decision to place your loved one in a nursing home facility in New York after considerable thought, you are turning the care of your family member over to highly trained staff who are committed to patient safety, happiness and well-being. Guaranteeing that your loved one is being treated accordingly and is both comfortable and thriving is critical to making sure that his or her experience is as effective as possible. 

Man suffers permanent paralysis at the hands of hospital staff

Because understanding medical conditions and being able to make correct diagnosis requires both knowledge and experience, many patients in New York rely heavily on their health care provider to be able to do just that. When they are experiencing an injury or suspicious symptoms that are interfering with their comfort, often the first thing they will do is contact their doctor for help managing and treating what they are dealing with. 

Pros and cons of cameras in nursing homes

For many families in New York and around the country, the need to provide care for an aging relative can be a source of concern. On top of finding a facility that offers the level and type of care needed for a loved one's situation, there can be worries about the safety of a resident. Elder abuse and neglect are real problems in today's society and the desire to guard against this has led many people to find ways to monitor their relatives in nursing homes and long-term care facilities.

Report exposes reasons for maternal mortality

Residents in New York who are expecting a new baby or who have a pregnant family member have good reason to be concerned about the health of not just the baby but the mother as well. While pregnancy and childbirth are normal events, they can expose babies and mothers to serious dangers.

Incompetence and surgical errors

There are countless reasons why surgical errors take place, but in this post, we will take a closer look at incompetence. Unfortunately, incompetent surgeons and medical professionals have caused many people to suffer serious injuries over the years, including fatal injuries, in some instances. Even though a surgeon may appear to be fully competent, they may lack the skills that are required to perform the operation properly. In New York City, and around the country, victims of medical professional negligence should not hesitate to stand up for their legal rights and explore the options that might be available to them.

What should I look for in a nursing home?

If you're considering nursing home care for a loved one, it's important you choose wisely. While you expect a facility to offer quality care to residents, this is unfortunately not always the case. Asking the right questions is crucial in this case, and AARP recommends the following when reviewing prospective facilities. 

How can hospital workers protect patients from pneumonia?

Pneumonia is a very serious infection of the lungs that can cause significant illness in certain patients. Accordingly, it's imperative that hospital workers take the proper steps to prevent the spread of illness-causing agents when treating patients. The Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology offers the following advice on what hospital staff must do to safeguard patient health.

Emotional pain following sexual abuse in a nursing home

From financial abuse to physical abuse which leaves victims with physical pain and scars, the consequences of nursing home abuse can be very upsetting. Unfortunately, some nursing home residents are subjected to abuse which is sexual in nature, which can also be physically devastating and may lead to significant emotional challenges as well. Following an occurrence of sexual abuse, a victim may be too ashamed to do anything about the abuse, and they may become very depressed or stressed out in the wake of the mistreatment. It is very important for victims to protect their rights and take steps to prevent abuse from occurring again.
