New York, New York (PRWEB) May 5, 2010
When physicians and other hospital staff members get too busy, what typically rises in New York is problems related to medical malpractice. Medical malpractice attorneys are what Beth Israel wants to avoid. After St. Vincents's, a major Greenwich Village hospital shut its doors this month, patients are flooding the Beth Israel hospital in greater numbers.
According to the New York Daily News, Beth Israel has experienced a 25% increase in walk-in patients in the week since St. Vincent's closed and daily admissions have reached an all-time high.
Hospital employees are commonly known to be overworked. Now, a major New York hospital has closed and another hospital is absorbing the majority of the medical malpractice cases. New York medical malpractice attorneys understand that circumstances like these have the potential to lead to mistakes.
"The closure did not benefit the community. What will benefit it is that the remaining hospitals are working towards the best solution for all New Yorkers," said NY medical malpractice attorney David Perecman.
