A stay in the hospital for any reason can be an extremely upsetting and stressful experience. Patients are completely dependent on the hospital and its staff for their immediate physical well being, including nursing care, medications, radiology, anesthesia, pharmacy, laboratory services, technicians, and more. All health care professionals have the responsibility of providing patients with an appropriate level of care and service, but their negligence can result in unnecessary injuries, illnesses, and death.

Every hospital is required by law to provide an adequate level of health care services. These standards are designed and put in place to ensure a baseline for medical care, and the failure to adhere to those standards is often the basis for a medical malpractice claim.

Examples of hospital negligence include:

  • Granting staff privileges to unqualified physicians
  • Failure to provide adequate support staff
  • Prescription errors and medication dosing errors
  • Failure to timely and properly perform diagnostic tests
  • Delay in responding to critical needs
