Hospitals are responsible for treating hundreds and even thousands of patients each day. Many of these patients are treated by several different doctors and nurses during their stay.
When hospital staff fail to follow the correct procedures, it can lead to serious errors in care, including:
- administering the wrong medication, or the wrong dosage of medication,
- delayed treatment for long periods of time,
- improper handling of patient records, leading to incorrect treatment procedures,
- inadequately trained staff treating patients,
- and poor cleaning or sterilization of medical equipment, causing infection or illness.
If you’ve been the victim of medical malpractice in a hospital, you may be facing even more treatments and medical bills. The Ohio medical malpractice attorneys from Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy can help you get compensation to cover the costs of your injuries.
Holding the Hospital Responsible
Most people think of a hospital as a safe place to seek recovery and treatment—not as somewhere harmful. When hospital staff acts negligently—or without reasonable care—it’s considered medical malpractice.
Medical malpractice claims require an in-depth investigation to prove fault and liability. At Nurenberg Paris, we have the resources to help you. We have many of years of experience investigating medical malpractice claims, and we’ll spare no expense to hold the at-fault party accountable.
Errors in Emergency Rooms
Emergency rooms are hectic. Often, patients are waiting to receive urgent care and there’s not enough staff to help them all in a timely manner. The doctors and nurses may be sleep-deprived and exhausted from working long shifts.
When this combination of stress and long hours causes hospital staff to make mistakes, the hospital may be considered negligent.
