Hospital malpractice errors can occur in many scenarios such as;
- Emergency Room failure to accurately and promptly treat or diagnose
- A radiologist does not properly read an x-ray, Ct, MRI or mammogram
- A general practitioner doesn’t listen to the patient and investigate the complaints
- Failure to document, reference or keep track of medical records
- Hospital or nursing staff is too overworked to react to a patient’s immediate need
- Improperly administering wrong type or dose of medication
- Using unsterilized or defective equipment
- Surgical errors, such as incision errors or not removing medical instruments
- A doctor performs a service outside of his or her expertise.
These are just a few examples of hospital negligence that can lead to serious or debilitating brain injuries, infant injury, paralysis, or chronic disorders. It is every patient’s right to receive adequate care, and lawsuits are meant to protect the public by holding hospitals and medical professionals accountable for negligence. Some victims often question whether their hospital negligence claim would be perceived as “frivolous” and if it would hurt the medical field by increasing insurance rates. William Sage of Harvard, (co-author of the Harvard study) stated that, “the major problem out there is medical errors that are not compensated, rather than frivolous claims that are compensated.” Suing a hospital for negligence can get you the money you need for recovery and it is a fact that more people suffer serious medical injury without receiving compensation than there are people who make false claims against hospitals and medical professionals.
