An article published by ModernHealhcare.com recently outlines the new privacy rule that was released on January 17th, 2013.

Kathleen Sebelius, the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services Secretary, commented on the rule saying, “The new rule will help protect patient privacy and safeguard patients' health information in an ever-expanding digital age.”

Defining Medical Malpractice Law

Medical malpractice occurs when a patient suffers harm due to the negligent actions or inactions of a medical professional. This video takes a closer look at medical malpractice and how you can tell whether your case is legitimate.

A physician, anesthesiologist, or pharmacist may be found guilty of medical malpractice if their conduct falls below the generally accepted standards of care and result in treating you. Examples include failure to diagnose a condition properly, errors during treatment, and improper medication prescriptions. You can learn how to file a personal injury claim for medical malpractice by watching the full video.

Chalk One Up For Women In Law! Jenny Rivera Nominated to the New York State Court of Appeals

Supreme court

Chalk one up for women in law! Governor Andrew Cuomo yesterday nominated Jenny Rivera, a CUNY Professor of Law, with no prior experience as a judge, to fill a state Court of Appeals seat!

If confirmed by the state Senate, she will become the second Hispanic to sit on the Court of Appeals. Cuomo's office praised Rivera, 51, as a defender of legal rights of all New Yorkers who would "make our state a fairer, more just place to live." Rivera was a special deputy state attorney general for civil rights when Cuomo was attorney general in 2007 and 2008. Since 2008, she has been a CUNY Law professor and founder and director of the school's Center on Latino and Latina Rights and Equality.
