What Is Hospital Negligence?

Hospital negligence is defined as when a staff member or the hospital itself breaches the duty/standard of care. This means that some aspects of the patient care you received were not in line with industry standards.

The most common causes of hospital negligence are:

  • Defective medical equipment
  • Poor communication between staff
  • Poor recordkeeping practices
  • Lack of properly trained staff
  • Lack of hospital policies, such as relating to any of the above

Have You Been a Victim of Hospital Negligence?

Signs that you have been injured by hospital negligence include but are not limited to:

  • A hospital staffer ignored your self-reported symptoms;
  • A hospital staffer did not obtain your informed consent for a medical procedure;
  • A hospital staffer misdiagnosed your condition;
  • A hospital staffer injured you with a defective medical device;
  • A hospital surgeon committed an error during a surgical procedure;
  • You contracted a healthcare-acquired infection (HAI), such as sepsis, a surgical site infection (SSI), or a catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI);
  • You were injured by a medication or anesthesia error; or
  • You were treated and harmed by a hospital staffer under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

If your injury was preventable and would not have happened at another hospital, it is very likely that you have a claim. Please note that it is not possible to sue for hospital negligence if that negligence did not result in further injury.
