Is your hospital a dangerous place? Sadly, when a hospital staff fails to protect a patient from further injury or risk of death, the hospital staff has committed medical malpractice.
The hospital staff, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, or anyone who works for or in the hospital, can be held accountable for medical mistakes made that result in serious harm or death to a patient.
There are many situations in which a hospital staff can make a mistake resulting in a patient’s injury or death, including:
- Preventing patients from developing foreseeable infections
- Safeguarding patients from unnecessary falls
- Failing to administer proper medications
- Providing inadequate nursing care
- Making errors during childbirth that cause death or injuries to the newborn such as Cerebral Palsy
