VICTIM OF HOSPITAL NEGLIGENCE? GET AN ATTORNEY
While hospitals are meant to provide healing, they also hold the potential for risk. Medical malpractice within a hospital can occur as a result of a medical error by a doctor, nurse, or any other medical professional working for the hospital or the medical malpractice can be a result of the policies and procedures of the hospital itself.
EXAMPLES OF HOSPITAL NEGLIGENCE
- Failure to follow procedures
- Failure to uphold standards during the hiring process
- Understaffing and/or overworking staff
- Lack of security
- Improper medication or dosage
- Premature discharge
Ensuring that patients are kept safe within the walls of a hospital is crucial. Upholding these standards is the responsibility of those who do the hiring as well as the staff themselves, from general hospital staff to doctors.
