Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital Medical Malpractice Lawyer

To err is human, and doctors are certainly human. But unlike a mistake an office worker might make working on a spreadsheet, a doctor’s mistake can be fatal. If you were a patient at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital and you have reason to believe that your healthcare provider made a serious error, and you suffered as a result, you have the option to hold Mount Sinai Beth Israel accountable for your economic and non economic damages. Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital medical malpractice lawyer Michael Gunzburg, P.C has nearly four decades of experience as a medical malpractice attorney, and is here to help you through this difficult situation.


Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose occurs when a healthcare provider fails to recognize the condition a patient is suffering from. This happens due to doctor inexperience, lack of attention given to the patient, failure to order the appropriate diagnostic testing, failure to interpret the test results, or from a host of other forms of negligence. Misdiagnosis can lead to a worsening of the patient’s conditions to the degree that the condition becomes untreatable, or the patient suffers unnecessarily.

Delayed Diagnosis

A delay in diagnosis is similar to misdiagnosis in that it prolongs the patient’s suffering and worsens their outcome. A delayed diagnosis can be more difficult for a patient to catch than an outright failure to diagnose. A doctor may not make any mention of wishing they had caught the condition sooner, which is why it is highly advisable to seek legal assistance if you have any suspicion of medical wrongdoing.

Failure to Treat

If a patient’s condition is diagnosed in time yet the doctor fails to implement appropriate treatment protocol, they and the hospital they work for can still be held liable for medical malpractice. Failure to treat includes not providing the right type of care, failure to provide follow up care, not providing the standard of care required for the patient’s condition, early discharge, treating with the wrong medication, etc.

Anesthesiology Errors

Anesthesia can be as simple as a local nerve block, to as complex as keeping a critical patient under during an hours-long surgery. When things go wrong, anesthesia errors can cause serious harm, including brain damage and death

Prescription Medication Errors

Prescription errors can be the fault of any number of healthcare providers. For example, a doctor may prescribe the wrong medication, a pharmacist may fill the wrong medication for the patient, a nurse may fail to update the patient’s chart, resulting in a double dose of that particular drug.
