Hospital Negligence Archives

Emergency room negligence must be taken seriously

When people go to the emergency room, it is typically because they think that they have something seriously wrong with them. They expect that emergency room staff will be ready to provide them with adequate medical care. Unfortunately, not all patients get that type of care.

Sepsis can occur in patients with spinal cord injuries

The nature of a spinal cord injury means that medical professionals have to be on the lookout for other conditions when they are caring for a person with this type of injury. One of the particularly problematic issues that might manifest is sepsis. Oftentimes, this occurs in response to an infection, such as a urinary tract infection, that is due to the effects of the damage to the spinal cord.

Considerable damages can stem from hospital negligence

A person who is admitted to the hospital assumes that the people taking care of them know what they are doing. While this is mostly true, it is also possible that there are going to be some issues during their admission. Anyone who is in the hospital needs to be vigilant about watching for hospital negligence. This is a serious issue that can lead to considerable health issues for the victims.

Patient transfers can sometimes lead to falls and injuries

For some nurses, one of the most difficult part of their job is lifting patients. This can be hard, because some patients are unable to move themselves onto the bed or into a chair. Some patients aren't even able to turn in bed. The nurses must then reposition them and help them move.

4 unacceptable things some hospital patients experience

There are many aspects of care that patients can experience at a hospital. One universal tenet is that the hospital must take steps to ensure patient safety. Doing so includes a vast array of steps and procedures. When any of these are omitted, the patients can suffer harm and the hospital could face allegations of negligence.

Hospital-acquired infections are hard to treat, but preventable

Patients in the hospital don't expect that they are going to leave with a hospital-acquired infection; however, it is a real possibility if the workers aren't taking steps to prevent them. It is imperative for all patients to keep a close eye on what is going on in their room when people are venturing in and out.

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.

Hospitals should be safe havens, not neglectful centers

Hospitals are charged with giving patients care that meets or exceeds the standard of care. When this doesn't happen, the patients can suffer from great harm. This is an atrocity that shouldn't happen to people who are trying to get the care they need from a source they trust.

A multifaceted approach is necessary in hospital negligence cases

Hospital negligence is never acceptable. There isn't any good reason why a person who seeks care in the hospital should be harmed due to factors like understaffing. When patients are harmed in these cases, those patients have a legal avenue to explore.
