How Do Hospital Errors Happen?
In most cases, patients are in good hands when they are in the hospital. However, negligence and recklessness can lead to serious, and even fatal errors. Doctors are often under tremendous pressure with long working hours and large numbers of patients. Often, they can make irresponsible decisions in an attempt to save time. In other cases, doctors and nurses are asked to do things that are beyond their realm of expertise. When they break the standard of care for your case, you can suffer tremendously because of their medical malpractice.
Because hospitals perform such diverse functions, there are many possible types of errors. Common incidents include:
- Incorrect prescriptions
- Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis
- Surgical errors, such as unsanitary operating conditions
- Unnecessary treatment
- Birth injuries, such as misreading a fetal distress monitor
- Malfunctioning medical devices
What to Do in the Case of a Hospital Error
Practitioners should quickly recognize a mistake and alert you and your family. However, in some cases, it may be days, months, or even years before you realize the devastating effects of a hospital error. Whenever you become aware of the mistake, you should seek experienced medical care and contact a qualified lawyer. With personal injury law, there is a statute of limitations, or a limited time frame, in which you can wage a lawsuit. The earlier you contact us, the better.
Once you contact Moody Law, we will examine the various circumstances surrounding your case. Through this investigation, we can determine whether your doctor or nurse was at fault. If so, your attorney can fight in negotiation or in court to obtain financial compensation. This money can cover various costs, including:
- Medical bills for additional treatment
- Lost wages
- Lost support for dependents
- Pain and suffering
If you are waging a wrongful death lawsuit, financial compensation can also help to pay for funeral expenses.
