Over 12,000 families warned of possible infection risk

Proper sterilization techniques are paramount to patient safety, especially for those who might be otherwise vulnerable or immunocompromised. Improperly sterilizing medical and surgical tools can have devastating consequences that can extend beyond an infection. A children's hospital outside of New Jersey recently notified tens of thousands of families that their children might have been exposed to severe diseases, all because of a problem with sterilization.

Victim died after filing medical malpractice suit for negligence

A New Jersey woman who filed a medical malpractice suit against her doctor has since died from the cancer that she claimed spread only after she underwent surgery. While family members who have had loved ones die from doctor negligence often undertake the responsibility of pursuing justice on behalf of the victim, it is not yet clear what will happen to this woman's case. At the time of her death, the suit was still ongoing.

Suffer from a surgery gone wrong? We can help achieve recourse

For a body part that many people in New Jersey do not fully understand, gall bladders can cause significant amounts of pain and suffering in patients who begin to experience problems with the relatively small organ. Quite often, these issues can be successfully addressed through surgical treatments, leaving patients feeling renewed and ready to move forward with their lives. Unfortunately, not all surgeons are adept at handling these cases, and instances of negligence can result in a devastating surgery gone wrong.

Malpractice suit alleges negligence played role in suicide

Families in New Jersey who have lost a loved one to suicide understand how devastating it can be. Despite the tragedy and grief that is commonly felt by families, as a consistently delicate topic, the conversation of possible blame is rarely ever touched. However, one family's medical malpractice suit has raised some important questions, including whether medical negligence can play a role in suicide.

Patient claims hospital negligence led to her devastating fall

Using the restroom might be an intrinsically private activity for the vast majority of people, but there times when adequate supervision is more important than anything else. For injured or seriously ill people, going to the bathroom by themselves can be dangerous, and allowing certain patients to do so can even be a violation of the standards of care. In other instances, a patient might be well enough to use the restroom on their own, but hospital negligence can still result in a tragic outcome.
