Hospital negligence: Contaminated tools may cause patients harm

Going to the hospital can often cause many New Jersey residents to experience anxiety. Of course, medical attention is often needed for individuals who need to have an injury, illness or other health condition examined and treated. However, it is also not unusual for patients to suffer additional medical problems due to hospital negligence.

Hospital negligence may cause permanent injury in New Jersey

Many individuals may fear that going to visit a doctor may make them worse off than they were before. Though this fear is often misplaced, there are some instances in which patients could suffer additional illness or injury due to the actions of doctors, nurses or other staff. Hospital negligence could cause serious issues, and a patient's life could be substantially impacted.

Hospital negligence could lead to New Jersey deaths

Losing a family member unexpectedly is rarely an easy matter for surviving loved ones to accept.

Hospital negligence could have permanent effects in New Jersey

Suffering from a medical issue can be a frightening experience. The situation can become even more difficult to accept when patients feel as if their concerns are not being addressed.

Medication errors can lead to hospital negligence

Is it possible that hospital patients and their families are too trusting? A nurse walks into a patient's room within a New Jersey hospital and gives the patient medication. The patient often takes the medication with little if any questions being asked. Yet, a recent research study suggests the number of medication errors and possible hospital negligence cases that occur is staggering.

Standards of care concern leads to claims of medical malpractice

Many New Jersey residents undergo elective surgery each year. In an attempt to look better in their own eyes and feel better about themselves, research is completed and the decision is made.

Newborn's injuries result of hospital negligence?

Pregnancy is an exciting time for most New Jersey moms-to-be. The excitement and nervous apprehension over when the baby will arrive make this both a stressful and joyous time for most. Baby showers are held, the nursery is decorated and bottles are ready. As the due date approaches, the expectant parents are often concerned about their baby; however, they often do not consider hospital negligence as something to be worried about.

Risk of hospital-acquired infection decreased over five years

Typically, when a New Jersey resident enters the hospital, it is with the intent to get well. Most of the time, the individual is either ill and requires medical attention, or the individual is in need to surgery. While a patient in the hospital, the individual has opportunity to come in contact with a variety of opportunities for infection. Fortunately, one recent report indicates that the risk associated with a hospital\-acquired infection as well as other hospital related concerns has decreased over a five year period.

Foreign object left in child causes illness

A New Jersey mother's intuition is certainly something that should not be ignored. A mother typically knows when something is not right with her child, and she will often purse the issue until it has been resolved to her satisfaction. Such intuition has recently come to play in a case where a foreign object left in a child resulted in weeks of illness and concern for a mother and her son.
