Child dies from birth injuries just before third birthday

Many women are making the decision to have a midwife-assisted birth in the comfort of their own home, rather than opting for a hospital birth. While this choice is a good one for many families, it comes with some risks. Those risks are multiplied when the midwife who is attending the birth doesn't react appropriately when it becomes obvious that there is an emergency situation at hand.

Understaffed, stressful nursing homes can lead to abuse, neglect

Nursing home abuse and neglect is a very serious issue, and unfortunately happens more often than many families are aware of. In the past few years, many nursing homes in New York have faced staffing shortages that results in nursing home patients being at risk for an injury caused by negligence or abuse.

Be aware of potential medical errors while in the hospital

Staying in the hospital can be quite scary for many patients and even for their families. When a patient's health is threatened by a medical mistake, victims are often scarred for life and instead of associating health care with healing many patients have a difficult time trusting anyone in the health care industry.

Diagnostic errors result in most medical malpractice claims

As more hospitals and medical centers are trying to improve patient safety, many patients may be wondering what risks they may still face when they are admitted to the hospital. Patients having surgery may worry about surgical mistakes or unsafe surgical equipment being used. Patients staying in the hospital may worry about medication errors or overdoses, and pregnant patients may worry about obstetric errors.
