Skilled New York Hospital Negligence Advocacy

Hospital error is often at the heart of a suspected medical malpractice case. By "hospital error," we mean system defects and failures such as the following:

  • Failure of doctors and nurses to communicate clearly with each other
  • Failure to perform appropriate tests
  • Failure of doctors or nurses to request tests that are indicated by symptoms
  • Failure to keep equipment, such as anesthesia equipment, in working order
  • Faulty intubation procedures
  • Failure of emergency personnel to tend to known health conditions (such as diabetes) of patients while they wait for treatment by emergency room physicians
  • Ignorance of important orders or requests in a patient's file
  • Medication errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Failure to administer blood transfusions as needed and indicated
