Woman has wrong rib removed, sues Yale and doctors

New Yorkers may be appalled after hearing that doctors at a hospital affiliated with Yale University allegedly removed the wrong body part from a woman during surgery, according to a recent lawsuit filed against the operating team and the hospital. Reportedly, after the wrong part removal happened, at least one doctor then attempted to cover up the error.

Spastic conditions and research

Spinal cord trauma is one of the most devastating injuries that can be encountered, and many New York residents suffer from the debilitating and long-term effects of such an injury. Research into the mechanism underlying spinal trauma and associated motor conditions have made major strides forward, and it is now believed that the trauma-related chemical feedback loop that causes spasticity has been isolated and identified.

Automatic braking coming to New York by 2022

Automatic braking, currently offered as an option for some new car models, will come as part of the standard package for most cars in the U.S. by Sept. 2022. Major automakers have agreed to install automatic braking systems after the systems have been shown to greatly reduce the risk of rear-end collisions.

Pedestrian fatality report makes grim reading

New York is one of the most dangerous states in the country for pedestrians according to a report released in March 2016 by the Governors Highway Safety Association. The Empire State, along with Florida, Texas and California, accounted for 42 percent of all pedestrian deaths in the first six months of 2015. The 2,368 pedestrians who lost their lives on the nation's roads during the first six months of 2015 represented a 6 percent increase over the first six months of 2014, but experts say that the increase could be as high as 10 percent when the entire year is looked at.

More accurate tuberculosis test has been developed

New York residents who have been diagnosed with tuberculosis may be interested to learn that a blood test that was developed at the Stanford University School of Medicine was found to be more accurate than the traditional skin prick test. The skin prick and associated blood test cannot distinguish between active tuberculosis and those who have had the vaccination.
