About Hospital Negligence and Errors

Hospital staff owes a duty of care to their patients and, when we go to the hospital for treatment, we expect to be cured or relieved of our symptoms.  When a member of the hospital staff does something they are not supposed to do given the patients’ circumstances or does not do something they must do in a situation, then that amounts to hospital negligence.

Hospital and emergency room (ER) negligence occurs when hospital or ER medical staff fails to do what they were supposed to do.  Examples of hospital negligence may include misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or failure to diagnose, hospital acquired infections, inadequate supervision, monitoring, and follow-up treatment.

Doctors, nurses, technicians, anesthetists, x-ray technicians are usually employed by the hospital and the hospital can be held liable for their negligence.

Examples of Hospital Negligence

Common instances of hospital negligence include:

  • Misdiagnosis, delayed, or failure to diagnose;
  • Improper, incorrect, or delayed treatment;
  • Failure to properly inform the patient of the possible risks, dangers and complications of the proposed treatment;
  • Lack of hygienic surroundings and overall cleanliness;
  • Incorrect medication or dosage;
  • Incorrect anesthetic or dosage of anesthetic;
  • Misuse of medical equipment or use of damaged medical equipment;
  • Unnecessary surgeries and procedures; and
  • Sub-standard hospital procedures resulting in infections or injuries.

Failure to diagnose, treat, and monitor a patient are the three principle hospital malpractice areas, and our trial lawyers have the experience you need no matter what type of malpractice claim you have.

If you or a loved one experienced inadequate and substandard hospital care, you may be entitled to compensation for your suffering.   The only way to know for sure what you are entitled to is to speak to an attorney – the hospital may offer you an immediate settlement, but know that hospitals will always attempt to settle for the least amount possible.

Why You Need an Experienced Hospital Negligence and Medical Malpractice Attorney

Issues of liability when it comes to hospital and ER negligence are particularly complicated and confusing, so having an experienced attorney to guide you through the process is vital. While specific doctors, nurses, or technicians may be held responsible for negligence, the hospital itself may also be liable.

In a hospital negligence case, you must prove that the hospital staff acted unreasonably and that their conduct was a direct cause of your injury. The fact that the efforts of the hospital staff were unsuccessful is not necessarily grounds for a malpractice case.

If you or a loved one experienced substandard or counterproductive care from a hospital or emergency room, contact an attorney immediately — you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and damages resulting from your injury or condition even if the hospital told you that you were not.
