An Inexcusable System Failure
Negligence Lawsuits Against New York Hospitals
Doctors are not always to blame for medical injuries. Rather than physician error, the negligence of nurses, technicians or staff may be the cause. Or adverse patient outcomes may stem from sloppy administrative practices, specific policies of the medical corporation or simple lack of communication.

Trial lawyer David J. Raimondo has 27 years of experience in medical malpractice litigation, including negligence lawsuits against hospitals. He personally examines the medical records and oversees the investigation. Mr. Raimondo is adept at shedding light on shoddy policies and lax enforcement that leads to breakdowns in diagnosis, treatment and care. How are charts and records kept? What cross-checks were in place to prevent mishaps? Are nurses routinely doing doctors' jobs — or unlicensed staff performing duties of an RN? Is the facility adequately staffed to meet the accepted standard of care?
