Serious Injuries Can Occur Due to Hospital Negligence
Despite incredible advances in medical science and technology, thousands of people unnecessarily die or suffer permanent injuries each year from treatment received in hospitals. Teams of medical professionals should work together at hospitals to provide the best possible care to their patients. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for hospitals to fail at providing even basic quality care.
Hospital negligence can occur for a variety of reasons:
- Doctors fail to diagnose or properly treat illnesses
- Mistakes can happen when hospitals are understaffed
- Hospitals delay treatment and sometimes discharge patients too early
Simple carelessness can result in patients receiving the wrong medications. Lifelong permanent injuries or death can results from anything from simple medical procedures to major surgeries that are negligently performed.
