Gerry's Educational Medical Malpractice Website
There are some who believe that if the New York State Department of Health determines that there was wrongdoing, that means they will get money for their injuries by the Dept. of Health.
Filing a complaint with the New York State Department of Health is not the same thing as filing a lawsuit. Filing a complaint simply triggers an investigation by the Department of Health.
The only way for you to obtain money for your injuries is to file a lawsuit. Once you have brought a lawsuit, the only way to get money for your injuries is If you are successful in your lawsuit.
When the Department of Health does an investigation to determine whether treatment was appropriate, if they find that the treatment was not appropriate, they issue a statement of deficiencies. That itemizes and details exactly where the hospital staff went wrong. The hospital is then required to prepare a plan of correction in order to fix those deficiencies.
The goal is to prevent this type of improper medical care from occurring again.
