Hospital Negligence Can Result in Severe Injuries or Death
Hospital negligence includes:
- Malpractice by doctors, physician’s assistants, nurses, nurse’s aides, and technicians employed by the hospital
- Inadequate staffing
- Failure to perform or correctly interpret diagnostic tests
- Inadequate supervision
- Poorly equipped facilities
- Emergency room errors
- Infections caught in hospital
- Lab/radiology errors
- Failure in communication between various hospital departments
There Is No Excuse for Hospital Negligence
There is no reason for placing any patient in danger by providing irresponsible care. According to Federal and State law, hospitals have to adhere to particular policies and procedures to ensure their patient’s well-being. When a patient is injured due to hospital negligence, the hospital can be held liable.
Our firm also deals with emergency room error claims and medical malpractice suits. Emergency rooms are mandated to care for both critical and non-critical patients in a highly intense and fast-paced environment.
The staff are trained in triage which is the assessment of the serious of a patient’s condition so that they can provide the necessary and prompt care. The wrong evaluation of a condition can result in delayed diagnosis and treatment, in turn leading to wrongful death.

The complicated system of hospitals means there is a myriad of opportunities for patients to get injured. Negligence on the part of doctors, nurses, facility management, in-hospital pharmacies, and other parties, can lead to significant injuries or death.
