Stillborn death leads to allegation of negligence

Many couples throughout New Jersey eagerly anticipate the birth of their child. Friends often shower the couple with gifts, and the soon-to-be parents carefully set up the nursery and safety proof the house. The baby's safety while still in the womb and after birth are primary concerns for these new parents. The thought of something happening and causing the death of this young life is inconceivable.

How the Medicaid Deficit Reduction Act impacts your health care

From 2005 to 2008, a series of regulatory overhauls was applied to Medicaid in order to reduce the federal budget. Many of these changes had little impact on recipients who already received coverage, but there were major changes that affected individuals across the spectrum. The most far-reaching of these changes applied to eligibility and liability. While the full scope of changes is too much to cover in a short session, the major issues are worth a quick lesson. Here is what you should know.

Failure to diagnose a concern for New Jersey families

When a New Jersey resident becomes ill, the logical thing to do is visit a doctor. In doing so, one expects that the doctor will perform an examination, run necessary tests, diagnose the problem and prescribe medication in order for the individual to feel better. Failure to diagnose the problem is usually not something that the individual should be concerned with.

New Jersey hospital negligence prevented by sterilizing equipment

Preventing the spread of infection and disease is a high priority throughout New Jersey hospitals and doctors' offices. There are mandated standards regarding cleanliness and the sterilization of tools and other equipment. Employees of these facilities often go to great lengths to ensure that these standards are adhered to in order to prevent spreading germs and the possibility of being accused of hospital negligence.

Hospital negligence can be devastating to New Jersey families

Many New Jersey residents suffer from conditions that require medical attention from time to time. While on some days the individual shows no symptoms and is able to function as any other person without a medical condition, on other days, the individual requires medication or perhaps even medical intervention. At times, this treatment involves surgical procedures and hospitalization to take care of the problem. It is assumed that when the individual seeks this intervention that the problem will be taken care of, and that hospital negligence will not interfere with the expected results.
