Highlighting Medical Malpractice & Personal Injury Issues Affecting New Yorkers


Dangerous Medical Instruments

Friday, March 9th, 2012

As surgical instruments have become smaller and more specialized they have become more difficult to clean, exposing patients to severe infections and life threatening illnesses. The Center for Public Integrity recently investigated this problem and reported on  “How Dirty Medical Devices Expose Patients to Infection”.

Experts have cited design flaws in certain reusable instruments that cause debris – often bone or tissue – to clog out of reach of cleaning brushes as a cause of this serious problem.

If you or a loved one has been injured in by dangerous medical instruments, we will listen to you, explain your options, and help you decide what action to take. The consultation is free, whether you call toll free at 1-888-MEDLAW1 or fill out a contact form on our website.
