Hospital Negligence Archives

Avoiding medical errors in the hospital

People in New York who have to seek medical care at the hospital may be better served by not going in the afternoon. Like in other occupations, people who work in the hospital are likely to experience fatigue and a reduction in productivity after lunch. However, when nurses and doctors experience fatigue, the outcome can be life-threatening.

Mothers at risk of injury or death in childbirth

When mothers in New York go to the hospital for childbirth, they may expect to receive exceptional care to protect their health and lives during delivery. However, the United States has the highest maternal injury and mortality rate among developed countries. Every year, around 700 mothers die in childbirth and 50,000 mothers suffer severe injuries.

Safety grades shed light on hospital care quality

New Yorkers may be concerned about the quality of care they will receive when they enter the hospital for surgery or other serious medical treatment. A spring 2018 safety report card issued by the Leapfrog Group noted that standards had improved at four hospitals in Central New York while safety grades had declined at four additional medical centers in the region. The report is issued twice a year and assigns letter grades-- A, B, C, D and F -- to hospital safety practices across the country.

Research shows data breaches increase patient deaths

According to a recent study, a startling number of patient deaths are related to data breaches at medical facilities. While the focus on data breaches usually revolves around a hospital's monetary loss, a data breach can in fact directly impact the health of patients in New York medical facilities.

Child's death highlights danger of hospital negligence

Going to the hospital can be a frightening experience for New York patients. Most of the time, this is simply because of the illness or injury prompting the hospital visit. However, when something goes wrong, there can be other reasons to be concerned.
