Types Of Hospital Errors
We handle hospital error cases involving:
- Failure to inform: Medical professionals are required to inform patients of the exact nature and risks associated with a medical procedure.
- Emergency room errors: ER situations are often stressful and high-paced, leading to an increase in mistakes by doctors and surgeons.
- Anesthesia errors: Administering anesthesia requires precise dosage calculations and other precautions. The slightest error by an anesthesiologist can lead to serious illnesses and injuries.
- Misdiagnosis: Incorrectly diagnosing or failing to diagnose an injury or illness can lead to worse problems.
- Hospital-acquired infections: Patients may develop various infections in a hospital if hospital staff members fail to keep their instruments sterilized.
- Injuries occurring while in the hospital: If hospital staff members fail to respond to patients’ requests for help to the bathroom or act negligently when transporting patients, serious injuries can result.
