Hospital Errors Attorneys

Malpractice Claims Against Hospital Administration Failure

A hospital is generally known as a clean, safe environment where one can go to seek quality medical care. Unfortunately, it has become increasingly common for patients to come out worse than when they went in. Corners are being cut and standards are being ignored, not just by individual medical providers but by the hospital administrations that employ them.

If a hospital is aware of mistreatment, unsafe environments, or sloppy administration, it is responsible for the consequences.

Hospital Errors Can Lead to Injury

As a medical establishment, a hospital can be held liable for the actions of any employee or associate that provides treatments on its premises. Likewise, the hospital administration may commit negligence in its area of responsibility, which can result in detrimental injuries to patients.

Errors by the hospital include, but are not limited to:

  • Nursing and other staff errors
  • Improper protection from falls
  • Failure to attend to unsafe conditions
  • Failure to properly monitor the patient
  • Failure to adequately sanitize medical rooms/tools
  • Administration error leading to operation on the wrong organ/patient
  • Inaccurate record keeping, leading to mistreatment of patients
  • Incorrect dosing/prescription of medication
  • Employee abuse or mistreatment of patients

Any of the above examples, and many other examples of hospital errors, are unacceptable and far too often result in patient nightmares and tragedies. When a patient is injured because of a hospital error, hospital administrators need to be held responsible for their negligence.

Why File a Claim for Hospital Errors?

If you are a patient that sustained injury because of a hospital error, or you know someone who did, you may be wondering whether the legal process of a claim is worth it. At Langer & Langer, we believe it is.

Filing a claim not only seeks to provide you with compensation and remedy for your troubles from the incident, but it also brings to light negligence and misconduct on the part of hospital administrators that, if unaddressed, may result in the injury of countless other patients.

Your claim could not only provide you with damages to help you through this time, it could prevent your nightmare from becoming someone else’s. Contact our Indiana medical malpractice lawyers for a case evaluation to learn more today.
