Medical professionals in New York City are some of the best in the world. When people are suffering from a serious health problem, they often come to doctors in the city for treatment. When a medical professional in New York City deviates from the standard of care that they are expected to provide, a patient can become seriously injured or even suffer fatal consequences. The public puts a tremendous amount of trust into medical professionals to ensure that all health issues are appropriately diagnosed and treated. Since the profession is so highly regarded, it is always disappointing, to say the least, when a physician does not live up to that standard. When a medical professional is negligent, they are putting the lives of a patient at risk.
Medical professionals do make mistakes. While some mistakes are simple errors that do not do much harm, others are very serious and can cost a patient their life. Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor strays from the code of ethics that they are expected to uphold. Some of the many forms of physician errors that occur include:
- Medication errors
- Anesthesia errors
- Spinal cord errors
- Orthopedic errors
- Additional forms of medical misconduct
