Lamentablemente, parece que los errores médicos aumentan. En un estudio realizado en el 2007 se encontró que la frecuencia de los errores médicos o negligencia médica ha aumentado entre el 2003 y 2005. Se determinó que el ochenta y seis por ciento (86%) de las muertes ocurridas en este lapso de tiempo «se podía atribuir» a dichos errores médicos.

El error médico llega a la altura de negligencia médica cuando está por debajo de la norma aceptada de tratamiento de la comunidad en que está el médico u otro proveedor. Todo error que está por debajo de la norma comunitaria puede constituir base de demanda judicial. A diferencia de otros estados, en Nueva York no se fija límite sobre el monto de la condena a pagar indemnización por daños y perjuicios que puede dictarse en los juicios de negligencia médica.

¿Contra quiénes se puede presentar la demanda?

Se puede demandar por negligencia médica a todo médico, enfermero, dentista, farmacéutico, técnico, empleado o empleado del hospital que interviene en la atención del paciente y comete un error que está por debajo de la norma de tratamiento de la comunidad. Aunque es cierto que los médicos no pueden hacer milagros y los hospitales no pueden garantizar los resultados, cuando el resultado es lamentable, es importante saber si hubo negligencia médica.

Lo anterior es muy cierto en Nueva York porque las leyes imponen un plazo riguroso. Las demandas judiciales por negligencia médica tienen que presentarse dentro de 2 años y medio contados a partir de la fecha en que se cometió el error. Si se presenta después, la demanda no se podrá admitir porque transcurrió el plazo, a pesar de lo meritoria que sea.
