Seemingly minor hospital errors can have big consequences

You don't go to a hospital thinking that you are going to get substandard care. When you choose a hospital, you are likely going to pick one that is close and that can care for what you have wrong. Unfortunately, there are times when hospitals drop the ball. In some of these cases, patients are harmed in the process.

We know that you just want to live your best life. You don't want to have to deal with the aftermath of hospital negligence. If you have been placed in a situation where you do have to figure out what to do about that atrocious situation, we can work with you to get a plan in motion.

One thing that people don't realize about hospital negligence is that even seemingly minor errors can have big impacts. For example, if a nurse doesn't wash their hands between patients, there is a chance that a disease might be transmitted from one patient to the next. If a fairly healthy person is exposed to an illness, such as the common cold, in this manner, there likely won't be any long-term effect from it. If the patient who is exposed is a transplant patient or someone with neutropenia, the transmission can be fatal.

Hospitals all have protocol that must be followed to reduce the risk of germ transmission. Nurses and all others who are working with or near patients must ensure they comply with those. When they don't, you might opt to seek compensation if you are seriously harmed by the negligent or reckless behavior.
