Medical malpractice case results in additional damages

New babies are born in New York every day. Many are born without incident and are able to go home with their loving parents. Unfortunately, for some newborns, they do not have the luxury of going home to grow up with their health intact. Due to the negligence of the health care personnel responsible for their wellbeing, these innocent babies are left with a lifetime of struggles.

Medical malpractice license sanctions may help related lawsuits

The New York State Department of Health Board for Professional Medical Conduct is charged with the responsibility of investigating and prosecuting claims of medical malpractice against physicians, who are also licensed by the state. Distinct from a medical malpractice lawsuit, these proceedings can result in professional sanctions against a doctor for his or her actions. In addition to censure and reprimand, the Board can issue fines, order education or retraining as well as community service. It can also order revocation or surrender of the physician's license. While the Board serves an important function, one cause for concern is that its determinations often come too long after the conduct that formed the basis for the original complaint.

If so, what were the specifics and what did the hospital do to address the issues?
