Patients injured by misdiagnosis of cellulitis

Many New York residents who have been told that they have cellulitis might have been misdiagnosed, according to a study. Researchers from several hospitals including Massachusetts General Hospital found that more than 30 percent of cellulitis diagnoses are incorrect. The misdiagnoses result in unnecessary hospitalizations and antibiotic prescriptions.

Medical errors in breast cancer diagnosis

Breast cancer is a serious disease that affects many women in New York and across the United States. Doctors agree that an early diagnosis is one of the most important factors in long-term survival. A delay in diagnosis by as little as three months puts most women in the significantly lower survival rate category of less than five years.

Nursing errors and malpractice

When people in New York enter a hospital, nursing home or rehab center, they are counting on the competency of the health care professionals who care for them. When these professionals are negligent or make a mistake, the consequences can be dire. Patients have lost their lives, independence, and their careers due to a medical or nursing error.

Challenges associated with rare diseases

New York residents suffering from a rare disease could spend years seeking answers from health care providers. Rare diseases present patients and their families with diagnostic difficulties because there tends to be limited information about the conditions. Per the National Institutes of Health, a disease fits the definition of being rare if it is identified in less than one person out of 200,000 in the U.S.
