Medical professionals are obligated to provide their patients with quality care. Patients and families in New York City trust that doctors and surgeons are doing whatever they can to prevent errors. However, a new study suggests that fatigue may impact how a surgeon performs.
Preparing for the birth of a child is often a joyous and exciting time for parents in New York City and beyond. It can be the best moment in a parent's life when they finally get to meet their child for the first time. Sadly, complications at birth can turn that miraculous moment into a tragic one. A birth injury can leave a child with major medical problems, which may require that the child receive lifelong care.
Watching a child suffer is likely one of the hardest things for a parent to endure. A couple from New York can attest to that. Their son was born with a genetic disorder called Tay-Sachs. He began having seizures and lost control of his muscles. He died when he was just 2-years-old.
When a patient trusts a doctor, he or she places his or her life in the physician's hands. A patient hopes that the doctor will exercise due diligence and inform the patient of any important information. However, this does not always happen. When it does not, this may present the potential for a medical malpractice suit.
