How to keep your doctor honest

Doctor error isn't the only thing patients in Queens, New York, have to worry about anymore. According to a recent survey published by Health Affairs, doctors are not always honest with their patients. More than 2,000 physicians surveyed nationwide confessed to not disclosing serious medical errors, not disclosing financial relationships with drug companies, telling their patients something untrue, and describing a patient's medical prognosis in an overly positive manner.

Family awarded $1.23 million in surgical error case

Medical malpractice can happen anywhere. Recently, a jury returned a verdict that awarded $1.23 million to the family of a 66-year-old woman who died of brain injury following a surgery in 2008. The damages included money for both economic and non-economic losses and were paid to the estate of the deceased woman. The jury found that the anesthesiologist during the surgery was "professionally negligent" and that his negligence was "a proximate cause of death."
