The success of most medical malpractice lawsuits depends on assistance from medical professionals in building and supporting your case. Unfortunately, a report in the New England Journal of Medicine has found that many healthcare professionals are unwilling to testify against their colleagues.

Various reasons were cited by the medical professionals contacted for the research published in the NEJM, but the bottom line often came down to money. A majority of respondents stated they feared a loss of referrals or other professional repercussions, which combined to make them unwilling to testify against their peers.

   Your spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that travels from your brain along your vertebrae and down to your extremities. Your spinal cord transmits electrical impulses carrying sensory inputs to your brain and takes commands from your brain to your body. While your vertebrae cover and protect your spinal cord, if you sustain trauma to your neck, head or back, this can damage and even rupture that delicate cord. This injury restricts your nerve impulses, which causes a loss of mobility below your area of injury.

   The  Act now clarifies that nursing home residents’ rights can now be vindicated even if abuse or neglect did not result in an injury. The Act clearly states that “assistance with activities of daily living” are a category of services that, if withheld or not provided, constitute neglect. This means if a nursing home fails to provide the most basic human needs, such as hygiene, dressing, and feeding. Although these failures may not result in a serious or permanent injury they are still considered abuse and neglect.
