What Constitutes Hospital Malpractice?

Hospitals have a high duty to patient safety. You are literally putting your life in their hands. This includes nurses, staff physicians, radiologists, lab technicians and any hospital employee who contributes to the diagnosis, treatment or supervision of a hospital patient.

Examples of actionable claims for hospital negligence might include:

  • Failure to monitor patients after surgery
  • Negligence in background checks or staff training
  • Non-sterile procedures resulting in staph infection
  • Emergency room malpractice
  • Discharging or failing to admit a patient in distress
  • Medication errors (wrong drug or overdose)
  • Patient injuries when falling from a bed, gurney or wheelchair
  • Lab errors leading to misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis

Making the Case For Hospital Negligence

Suing a hospital requires evidence that hospital employees deviated from standard protocols or failed to provide reasonable and diligent care. The negligence must be directly related to lasting harm or a preventable death.

Medical cases are more likely to end up in litigation, and we do not shy away from the courtroom. Our veteran trial lawyers have successfully sued Pennsylvania hospitals and health care systems. We know how to investigate these situations, and we have the resources to hire experts who can corroborate the case for fault and monetary damages.
