A study shows that electronic medical records are often wrong

There's been an uptick in the use of electronic health records (EHRs) in recent years. Many New York doctors store patient records in these portals. They also rely on them for communicating with patients about test results and treatment options. Patients' increased access to their records has led them to discover errors in them. This discovery could adversely impact the diagnoses that doctors assign patients.

Epilepsy may be more complicated than once thought

There are many diseases that are not fully understood, which makes it possible that they are misunderstood. Epilepsy, which is best known for the powerful seizures it can create, is getting a fresh look from doctors and scientists after it appears many of the people diagnosed with it do not respond to the treatments once found appropriate for it.

Communication errors can lead to failure to diagnose

Communication is key in any profession. It is essential in the medical industry. If communication errors occur in a hospital or other medical setting, it can lead to disastrous and deadly consequences. For example, when an error in communication leads to the failure to diagnose a patient, that patient might have the basis for a medical malpractice claim.

How does a failure to diagnose impact you?

The failure to diagnose an illness or disease can have disastrous effects on you and your family. To make matters worse, diagnostic errors are more expensive and damaging than errors in treatment, according to a report from Johns Hopkins Medicine. Let's take a look at how failure to diagnose can impact you in today's post.

Homebuyers see new drop in lending rates

All across the state of New York and certainly within the metropolitan New York City area, many residents who have wanted to buy their own homes have had to postpone making such a move because of the costs associated with the purchase of a property. One of these costs is the asking price of any home which has been increasing, although the prices of new and resold homes has levelled a bit recently. 

What causes errors in emergency room electronic health records?

When you visit a hospital emergency room in Queens, New York or anywhere in the greater metropolitan area, it is usually due to an acute medical condition that cannot wait until you are able to get an appointment to see your regular doctor. Therefore, it is imperative that everything is accurately documented so that you can get the right care and proper follow-up. Sometimes there are mistakes in ER electronic records that can lead to the wrong treatment or even death. What causes these errors to occur?

Existing technology in hospitals may decrease prescription errors

Patients in New York often worry about medication errors and what may happen if they are ever a victim. Medication errors can lead to accidental overdose, which can be fatal. What is perhaps most terrifying about this type of medical mistake is that it is on the rise.

Medical errors the nation’s third-most-common cause of death

No one knows your body quite like you do, so when you feel unwell, you probably trust your instincts and visit your New York doctor so he or she can figure out what is wrong and recommend a course of treatment. Unfortunately, though, some patients find out the hard way that doctors, like everyone else, are not immune to making mistakes. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we understand that physician errors are a serious concern for many patients, but we also recognize that there are certain things you can do to help avoid having a medical mistake wreak havoc on your life.

Signs and symptoms of undiagnosed Lyme disease

When you have certain medical conditions, your best chance at a full recovery often comes with an early and accurate diagnosis, but regrettably, not all New York doctors guide their patients in the right direction. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we recognize that failing to diagnose certain specific medical conditions, among them Lyme disease, can lead to a wide range of related complications, many of which can take a considerable toll on your overall quality of life.
