Anesthesiologist settles lawsuit based upon surgery gone wrong

Patients in New Jersey should be able to trust their attending healthcare providers to only act and perform within both the limits of their ability as well as their licensing. A doctor in New Jersey has been accused of improperly acting outside of his abilities and, as such, lost his license. He has been targeted as the attending doctor during more than one surgery gone wrong.

Victims allege hospital negligence in claims of sexual abuse

As recently discussed on this blog in "Neurologist violates standards of care, loses license" (June 18), it is of vital importance that the relationship between a patient and their healthcare provider be professional and free of any inappropriate behavior. However, one doctor has been accused of violating the trust and rights of some of his patients by engaging in nonconsensual sex acts. Hospital negligence may have played a role in the allegations, as some question why he was permitted to continue seeing patients while unsupervised.

Failure to diagnose cancer led to woman's death

The death of a loved one is rarely an easy pill to swallow, and when that death was caused by an apparent act of malpractice, it can be even more difficult to comprehend. One woman’s death as a result of failure to diagnose cancer was the result of a doctor in another state. He is also licensed to practice medicine in New Jersey. Although he had previously lost his license to practice in a neighboring state, he retained the ability to practice in three total states. Nevertheless, he was required to inform those states of his license revocation and apparently failed to do so.

The cases were settled from 2005 through 2011, and the total of the four payments is $1.4 million. According to a report from the Center for Investigative Reporting, negligence, misdiagnosis, failure to monitor, and mismanagement were factors in the cases.
