Court decides robotic surgery medical malpractice claim

When medical errors happen in New Jersey, there are a number of questions that must be studied to learn whether the errors constituted medical malpractice. In general, if a mistake is caused by a doctor or nurse deviating from the accepted standards of practice, that mistake is medical malpractice. However, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals are not the only ones who can be held liable for medical errors. Hospitals and the manufacturers and sellers of medical devices sometimes also run afoul of accepted standards, resulting in harmful complications for patients.

Study Finds No Evidence of Heightened Risk With Surgical Residents

Going under the knife is nothing to take lightly. Knowing your surgeon is fresh out of residency only adds to the stress. But one study, however, indicates that-despite public perception-there is no higher risk of serious complications or medical errors from surgery performed by a surgeon-in-training or resident than a seasoned physician.
