Threatening public access to physician credentials and malpractice records, the current budget proposal from Gov. Andrew Cuomo cuts funding for the New York State Physician Profile website. Originally created by legislation in 2000 and run by the Health Department, the online database allows free access to information about doctors in the state. Details like hospital affiliations, background information, professional misconduct, and legal malpractice actions are available at the website.

Patients in New York want to believe in their doctor, but even the best health care professionals are still normal people. Hospitals are in the business of healing the sick and injured, but at the end of the day they are still businesses. While neither doctors nor health care administrators will want to admit it, there are a few secrets about the health care industry that can have major impacts on patients' treatments.

According to a study done by the Journal of Patient Safety, as many as 440,000 patients may die each year due to hospital medical errors. If the figure is accurate, it would represent a significant increase when compared to earlier studies. In 1999, a notable study conducted by the Institute of Medicine found that 98,000 people allegedly die each year due to hospital errors.

Just because you develop a complication after a surgical procedure, it does not necessarily mean there was wrongdoing. Many patients who develop complications after surgical procedures think that since they have developed these complications, something must have gone wrong or something must have been done wrong.

The doctor has operated on the wrong side of your body, and he refuses to acknowledge the extent of your injuries. Here it is quite clear to you that the doctor violated the basic standards of care, which has resulted in significant and permanent injuries to you. You believe that the moment you bring a medical malpractice lawsuit against the doctor, he and his attorney is going to accept total responsibility and will recognize the full extent of your injuries and damages.

In a medical malpractice case, the plaintiff's attorney receives the opportunity to ask questions to the doctor regarding the incident, at the deposition. This question and answer session takes place in an attorney's office, under oath, and whatever is said during the deposition can be presented as evidence during the trial. Before the deposition, the plaintiff's attorney reviews the case file and medical records of the patient.

Residents of the state of New York have the right to expect competent and reasonable medical care from their doctors. However, it may sometimes happen that a mistake is made in the course of treatment. As most patients are not medically trained, it is common for them to be unaware of the error unless they are informed by their doctor or other medical practitioner. In response to this situation, a law has been passed specifically requiring all hospitals to report any errors.

Ever since actor Joan Rivers' untimely death, rumors are rife about how her doctor went against her wishes to perform a biopsy that might have caused her death. Her daughter has already come out in public and voiced her doubts regarding the doctor's actions. But it's not going to be an easy task to prove malpractice especially when Joan herself is not available to tell the world what she had consented to and what had been done to her. So far, we have only been grasping at straws.

In a wrongful death case, the main thing the jury will want to know is what caused the death of the person. A pathologist is usually called to provide this information. A pathologist is an expert doctor who specializes in understanding the cause of death of a person. The pathologist will perform an autopsy, which is a clinical examination of the individual's body. When the autopsy is undertaken and done, the main purpose would be to evaluate and find out why the person died.
