Patient Safety Awareness Month

March is Patient Safety Awareness Month, which means that it’s an excellent time to highlight the importance of taking precautions as a patient against potential medical mistakes. While it is the responsibility of all medical practitioners to uphold the highest standards of safety in order to protect their patients, patients can also do their part to minimize the risk of harm. Going for regular check-ups, keeping track of your symptoms, having a list of allergies and current medications on hand whenever you visit a medical facility, asking plenty of questions, and getting a second opinion when necessary are all ways that you can help to keep yourself safe as a patient.

If you are concerned about a misdiagnosis or possible medical error, contact the law firm of Pegalis & Erickson, LLC in New York. For 45 years, we have advocated for people of all ages, in order to help our clients financially and make healthcare safer for everyone. You can reach us today by calling (516) 684-2900.
