Nursing Negligence Archives

The role of communication issues in medical errors

If medical errors were classified as a cause of death, they would be ranked below heart disease and cancer as the third leading cause of death in the U.S. A 2016 study in the BMJ estimated that 250,000 deaths occur each year in this nation because of medical errors. New York residents should know that many of these errors grow out of simple communication issues.

Medication errors and how doctors can avoid them

Patients in New York who expect dependability from their health care practitioners. However, a 2016 study from Johns Hopkins University suggests that more than 250,000 Americans die every year because of medical errors. Despite the availability of digital record-keeping technology in clinics, there are still many ways for simple mistakes to hamper medical care.

Medical Malpractice Arising Out of Nursing Negligence

Doctor with Lawyer - Medical Malpractice.jpgWhile medical malpractice is more often than not attributable to physicians, surgeons, and even pathologists, it is also commonly seen that medical malpractice arising out of nursing negligence happens in the best of hospitals and clinics from time to time.

Lawsuits against nurses

While many New York medical malpractice lawsuits are filed against doctors, mistakes by nursing staff can be just as serious. When a medical error can be traced back to a nurse or any other hospital employee, it is usually possible to file a lawsuit against that person directly.

Nurse may have exposed patients after reusing syringes

New York patients may be dismayed to hear that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported that a nurse may have infected two people with viruses after reusing syringes. It was believed that, as a result, two patients were exposed to the hepatitis C virus and two other patients were exposed to the hepatitis B virus.

Negligence leading to bedsores in hospitals

A common type of problem that can happen when New York hospital patients are bedridden is the development of a bedsore. Health care facilities have protocols in place in order to prevent people from developing bedsores, but medical staff members do not always take the steps that are required to help prevent their development.

Study: elderly patients with female doctors have better results

Many people who are in need of medical care don't notice the difference of care if their doctor is a man or a woman. As people age, the degree and frequency of care increases, and it becomes very important that the elderly patient receives the best care possible.
