What is Hospital Negligence?
A hospital can be found negligent when the actions – or lack of action – of its staff or policies cause preventable harm to a patient. There are several situations in which a hospital can be held liable, including:
- Unsanitary practices or conditions
- Sudden or unexplained death
- Negligence committed by a staff member
- Surgical mistakes
- Poor training or improper supervision of policies and procedures
- Failure to maintain medical records
- Failure to check and confirm the credentials of independent contractors, such as attending physicians
- Prescription errors
- Negligent hiring and firing practices
- Failure to maintain medical equipment
If you or a loved one has been injured because of any of these situations, the hospital where it occurred could be held liable for any damages.
Through a free, no obligation consultation with our hospital negligence lawyers, we can help you determine exactly what led to your injuries and how we can hold the responsible party liable. You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more.
Liability in Hospital Negligence Cases
Determining liability in cases of hospital negligence can be difficult. Simply because negligence occurred at a hospital, does not necessarily mean that the hospital can be held responsible.
Hospitals are only responsible for the actions of their staff. However, not everyone who works in a hospital is an employee of the facility. Hospital staff typically includes:
- Medical technicians
- Medical records keeper
There are also many other medical practitioners who practice medicine and medical procedures in a hospital who are not regular employees.
These individuals are independent contractors who are temporarily hired or invited to practice in the facility but are not employed by the hospital. Therefore, they are solely responsible for any actions of negligence or malpractice, not the hospital.
The hospital, however, must legally inform you before an operation or procedure that is being conducted by a member of the medical community who is not employed by the hospital.
At Janet, Janet & Suggs, our hospital negligence lawyers will help you determine exactly who was responsible for your injuries. We will investigate the causes of the incident and interview the staff to determine if you have grounds for a legal case and are entitled to compensation.
