New York hospitals can be intimidating places. Part of what makes them this way may be the idea that one has little choice when it comes to staying in any of the over 200 hospitals the American Hospital Directory lists as operating in New York. That perceived lack of choice can be even more frustrating given that many find it difficult to get background information on hospitals other than that what their employees are willing to give. Thus, one may have no idea whether or not complaints that require the involvement of New York hospital malpractice attorneys have been filed or are currently pending against a facility. Fortunately, there is one source health care consumers can turn to for more specific information on the hospitals in their areas.
