Every day, thousands of people in New York seek medical care. Whether for routine, preventative needs, emergency situations for ongoing care for a chronic illness, there is a wide variety of reasons that require a visit to a doctor or a hospital. Patients have the right to be able to choose their medical providers and this alone can at times be a challenging task. Concerns about medical mistakes such as surgical errors, misdiagnosed illnesses, incorrect medication dosages and more abound due to the very real threat of such situations.
Medical professionals in New York and all throughout the nation are obligated to follow hospital protocol and provide their patients with the best standard of care possible. When they deviate from those standards, such as performing surgeries without the proper approvals, injury and death can ensue and a medical malpractice case may be sought.
