The Alarming Maternal Health and Infant Mortality Crisis in New Jersey

By |February 19th, 2019|hospital negligence|0 Comments

Most women in the United States give birth without complication and live to tell about it, but not everyone does. About 50,000 women are severely injured, and about 700 die in childbirth, each year. An investigative report in USA Today reports that about half of those deaths and injuries could have been prevented or reduced with better care. As the title says, "Hospitals know how to protect mothers. They just aren't doing it." While globally, the [...]

Contaminated Equipment at CHOP Precedes Infant Infections, Deaths

By |October 6th, 2018|Hospital Acquired Infections, hospital negligence, medical malpractice|0 Comments

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) is self-described as a “pediatric healthcare facility and primary care provider, offering the best available care and support for kids.” It is highly ranked throughout the country as compared to other children’s healthcare facilities. Even so, 23 premature infants in the facility’s intensive care unit recently contracted viral infections after eye exams. The infections were attributed to inferior equipment cleaning practices, and the failure of medical staff to wear gloves [...]

Violence in Healthcare Settings Considered a Public Health Crisis

By |September 26th, 2018|hospital negligence, medical malpractice|0 Comments

Hospitals and doctors are often the first to deal with injuries associated with gun violence. Despite this, many hospitals do not have the appropriate protective equipment or scanning systems to deal with potential violence. For this reason, the American Medical Association officially considers this a public health crisis. Recent research indicates that more than twice as many hospitals have been the setting for gun violence as compared to cyberattacks and hacking. Furthermore, nearly one-quarter of healthcare [...]

Contamination in Healthcare Settings

By |September 21st, 2018|Hospital Acquired Infections, hospital negligence, medical malpractice|0 Comments

Personal protective equipment (PPE) and preventive protocols are established for health care environments to protect workers, their co-workers, and the patients they care for. But a recent study has revealed that many health care workers are remiss when it comes to following the regulations. Researchers recently observed health care workers inside and outside patient rooms over a nine-month period. Over that time, researchers recorded nearly 300 offenses that had the potential to trigger the transmission of [...]

Sepsis Awareness Month

By |September 7th, 2018|Hospital Acquired Infections, hospital negligence, medical malpractice|0 Comments

September is Sepsis Awareness Month. Sepsis is a life-threatening condition that develops as a result of an infection. If left untreated, it can lead to organ failure or even death. The Sepsis Alliance is encouraging communities to spread the word about this deadly condition and learn the risks and warning signs that could potentially save lives. When a person gets an infection, it triggers an immune response to kill the germs causing it. In patients with [...]

Surgical Checklists  

By |June 28th, 2018|hospital negligence, medical malpractice, Surgical Mistakes|0 Comments

Hospital malpractice can take many forms, but patients undergoing surgery encounter some of the biggest risks. Operating rooms are fast-paced environments, and surgical errors can happen in the blink of an eye. Physicians might miss an important detail on a patient’s chart, such as an allergy, or make an incision in the wrong place. In some cases, foreign objects such as a needle or sponge might be left in the patient after surgery; if not discovered [...]

New Jersey’s Safest Hospitals

By |May 26th, 2018|hospital negligence, medical malpractice|0 Comments

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades survey has been released twice annually since 2012. The survey measures how safe a hospital keeps a patient while they are being cared for, rather than focusing on the doctor’s care. This grading system was developed because of a 1999 report by the Institute of Medicine. That shocking report revealed that hospital errors fatally injured about 98,000 patients a year. Moreover, New Jersey did not fare well with survey results. The [...]

Automated System to Prevent Medication Errors

By |March 7th, 2018|hospital negligence, medical malpractice, Medication Errors|0 Comments

The Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association has published a new study by researchers at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) where they designed and tested an automatic system to detect medication administration errors (MAEs). A medication administration error is a discrepancy between the medication the prescriber intended and what the patient receives. In reviewing 91 studies, the researchers estimated that 20 percent of hospital errors were MAEs. MAEs have the potential to cause [...]

Proposed Healthcare Law

By |March 3rd, 2018|hospital negligence, medical malpractice|0 Comments

Patients in hospitals and other health care facilities have varying needs.  Responding to these needs with the necessary level of care requires facilities to not only have the appropriate amount of staff, but also have staff that thoroughly understand the needs of each patient. A new bill before the New Jersey State Senate would establish a minimum number of nurses per patient for different types of health care facilities, but nursing groups are concerned that the [...]

Hospital Negligence Lawsuit in Death of Glenn Frey

By |February 3rd, 2018|hospital negligence, medical malpractice|0 Comments

It is easy to assume that fame and money pave the way for better medical care. That is not necessarily so, as shown by a lawsuit for medical errors and hospital negligence filed by the widow of Glenn Frey, co-founder of the Eagles, an American rock band. In the suit, both the hospital and Mr. Frey’s physician are accused of negligence and failing to properly treat and diagnose the musician. He passed away due to complications [...]
