Statute of limitations amendment does not advance in New York

A proposed monumental law for New York City patients died last week in committee. The bill's sponsor, Assemblywoman Helene Weinstein, said that once she realized it was not going to get passed by the Senate, she decided to put the bill on hold.

New York City surgeon removes wrong kidney; hospital apologizes

A wrong-site surgery at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City recently made headlines when the wrong kidney of a 76-year-old was removed. In this case, while it is unknown what caused the wrong-site surgery, it turns out wrong-site surgical errors are more common than many might realize.

Medication error contributing factor in patient's death

Many of the patients in hospitals are already in vulnerable states. Whether it is due to disease, infection or injury, many of these patients just want to be properly treated and no longer in pain. Many of these same patients also do not know that much about medicine and rely on the nurses in the hospital to give them the proper medications, in the right amounts.

What can be done to prevent doctor errors?

Doctor errors happen for a number of different reasons. In New York, many physicians are seeing what feels like a constant stream of patients and in turn can feel rushed. Others can make a simple mistake or overlook a key part of a patient's medical history. However, what may seem like just a small error can end up being deadly for a patient.
