Negligence In Hospitals
Hospitals have important responsibilities in caring for vulnerable patients. When they fall short, innocent patients pay the price. For example:
- Has your loved one developed bedsores during a hospital stay? Perhaps the nursing staff neglected to reposition them every two hours, leading to painful pressure sores that can become infected. Perhaps they failed to promptly change soiled sheets or didn’t provide a specialty mattress for alleviating sores.
- Has an elderly family member suffered a catastrophic fall at a hospital? Perhaps the nursing staff failed to implement appropriate fall precautions — or to adequately supervise your loved one.
- Has your loved one suffered brain death or other permanent harm because hospital nurses ignored their vital signs?
