Hospital Negligence

Working on Behalf of Hospital Negligence Victims

Hospitals have a responsibility to provide quality patient care and make decisions that are in the best interest of their patients. When they fail to provide adequate care, and a patient is injured as a result of this negligence, the victim is entitled to financial compensation.

About Hospital Negligence

Hospital negligence is a form of medical malpractice that occurs in a hospital setting – either by doctors, nurses, technicians, or other employees. Hospital personnel have a duty to keep the facilities clean and safe, and administrators are accountable for making sure that staff members are trained, work reasonable hours, and are rested enough to make responsible decisions regarding patients and their treatment. In situations where these standards are not upheld, the hospital is at risk of being negligent and compromising a patient’s well-being.

Examples of Hospital Negligence

Our attorneys represent victims injured by the following types of hospital negligence:

  • Failure to prevent patient falls
  • Insufficient communication between personnel relating to a patient’s diagnosis and treatment plan
  • Negligent supervision of patients
  • Anesthesia mistakes
  • Medication errors
  • Surgical errors
  • Not meeting the minimum standard of care
  • Untrained employees
  • Overworked or tired employees
  • Using defective equipment
  • Failure to follow the correct protocol in situations such as the spread of infection, violent injuries, or other incidents
