When Hospital Negligence and Medical Errors Result in Serious Injury

Medical errors occur when the medical standards of practice are not met by doctors, nurses, hospital personnel or emergency room staff. Nurses have the most interaction with patients with routine check-ins and various other responsibilities. Emergency room personnel provide urgent care that is critical in the recovery of the patient.
Patients placing their trust in a medical professional could find themselves injured. Family members already concerned about their loved one admitted to a hospital end up grieving his or her death over hospital malpractice.
Medical errors and other forms of malpractice that lead to a hospital injury can take many forms and include:
- Misdiagnosis or mistreatment of a serious medical condition
- Misinterpretation of test and lab results
- Failing to follow up on lab and test results
- Providing the wrong medication or improper dosage to a patient
- Failing to maintain accurate records
- Failing to take sanitary precautions or treat infections
- Failing to attend to immediate patient need
- Failing to communicate new symptoms or patient complaints to another medical professional
- Equipment that is not properly sterilized or defective
