Medical malpractice: Where is justice when crimes are unreported?

There comes a time when many families in New Jersey are tasked with the difficult decision regarding the most appropriate placement of family members who require medical assistance. Many must ultimately decide that they are no longer able to meet their loved one's needs and place them in a nursing home facility. These families believe that these facilities will strive to protect the safety and well-being of their residents; failing that, they believe that the facility will take appropriate action if harm -- including medical malpractice in the form of abuse -- should occur.

Medical malpractice: Facility fined after abuse allegations

People with dementia in New Jersey and across the country often live in a world that caregivers and family members cannot access. Even when those struggling with this disease are coherent, claims of abuse or violence may not be believed due to issues with their memories or the belief that they could simply be hallucinations from the medications they are taking. However, the claims from women in a nursing home in another state may now be believed after a man was convicted of charges related to sexual assault. A medical malpractice lawsuit could potentially follow the verdict.

New Jersey law intended to fight nursing home medical malpractice

Many people in New Jersey are sometimes forced to face an unhappy truth -- that they are no longer capable of meeting the medical needs of their aging loved ones. Unfortunately, some people may have concerns about placing their family members in long-term care facilities such as nursing homes due to issues related to medical malpractice, specifically in the form of abuse or neglect. As a result, lawmakers have recently created a law that changes how care providers are expected to report cases of abuse.

Dementia often forces families to make difficult decisions. In many cases, those suffering from such a disease become unable to care for themselves, and family members are often unable to meet their healthcare needs. Thinking it in their loved ones' best interests, many in New Jersey make the decision to place them in nursing home facilities. However, instances of medical malpractice -- in the form of abuse or neglect -- often have families questioning the care provided.

Common surgical errors and why they occur

Surgery is a serious procedure. Whether you are getting gastric bypass surgery or getting your appendix remixed, it is a big deal. Everyone gets a little nervous about surgery, but most people have confidence in surgeons to get the job done safely. Unfortunately, sometimes things go wrong. According to a study released by Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, there are at least 4,000 surgical errors per year.

Wrongful death: Group home administrator faces criminal charges

People in New Jersey and across the country who struggle to provide care for themselves are often placed in assisted living facilities. Employees in these facilities are sometimes tasked with dealing with people who may exhibit challenging behavior -- behavior that is often beyond the control of the patient. Despite this, staff must continue to meet the care needs of all patients in a professional manner. Unfortunately, the administrator of an assisted living facility in another state could potentially face a wrongful death lawsuit after she was arrested and faces multiple charges in connection to the death of a resident.
