February 2018 Archives

Medication mistakes causing antibiotic resistance

Medication errors can compromise the health of New York patients, worsening existing medical conditions and causing adverse reactions. According to the World Health Organization, medical errors can also increase resistance to antibiotics. Resistance to antimicrobials can take place when there are modifications in bacteria that make the medications intended as treatment ineffective. Antimicrobial resistance is an issue that is impacting the world. If the issue is not properly addressed, the era of modern medicine could come to an end.

Costly hospitalization for misdiagnosed cellulitis commonplace

Potentially one-third of patients admitted to hospitals in New York for cellulitis have been misdiagnosed. Instead of cellulitis, they could have pseudocellulitis, a condition that resembles the bacterial skin infection but inflames the skin for other reasons. People misdiagnosed with cellulitis could receive unnecessary antibiotic therapy.

Medical malpractice and misdiagnosis

Medical malpractice affects many New York residents every year, and a common type is a misdiagnosis. A failure to diagnose a disease can lead to harm for the patient if treatment is delayed after a medical provider failed to correctly identify the patient's condition. Another type of misdiagnosis occurs when a doctor tells patients that they have a condition that in fact they do not have, which can result in unnecessary invasive procedures.

When gallbladder surgery leads to injuries

In an estimated 1 percent of all gallbladder operations, patients come away with some form of injury to their bile duct, the organ that leads bile from the liver to the gallbladder. Those in New York who are suffering from bile duct injuries should know that these could have resulted from malpractice.

New study focuses on post-treatment Lyme disease

Ticks are common in New York, which means that so is Lyme disease. While the tick-borne illness can be readily addressed with antibiotics, it has been known to linger on in the form of symptoms like joint pain, brain fog, fatigue and headaches. This condition is known as post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome, and it can last between several months and a couple years.

Early diagnosis crucial to gynecological cancer outcomes

Gynecological cancers underline the importance of early diagnosis for women in New York and across the United States. These types of cancers, which affect the female reproductive system, can have a severe and deadly impact on women's health. However, many are quite treatable if they are diagnosed and treated early in their development. Delayed diagnosis, on the other hand, can have severe consequences for a woman with gynecological cancer.

Lavern's Law extends malpractice deadline

New York legislators have agreed on a compromise to extend the deadline for filing certain medical malpractice claims. The law, which passed the state senate and assembly on Jan. 30, changes the statute of limitations for missed cancer diagnosis cases from 15 months to 30 months after the patient discovers the error. The passage comes two days after Gov. Andrew Cuomo and legislative leaders announced an agreement on the measure.

Why women are more likely than men to die after heart attacks

Some New York women who have heart attacks may not recognize their symptoms because those symptoms tend to differ from the more highly-publicized ones suffered by men. Furthermore, medical professionals may not treat women's heart attacks as aggressively as men's. The Journal of the American Heart Association has published research that says women are more likely to die in the year after a heart attack than men. The reason appears to be the type of care women receive in the wake of such an attack.
