Unsanitary Hospital Conditions And Doctor Malpractice
Hospital negligence takes many forms. Sadly, one of the most common is unsanitary conditions that lead to bacterial infections.
Because of the influx of patients carrying different kinds of germs and bacteria into hospitals, it is crucial that doctors and hospital staff follow strict sanitary procedures and conduct extensive bacteria testing. Too often, when these safety measures are not taken, new strains of drug-resistant bacteria are introduced into the medical setting, resulting in the wrongful death of patients. Full or partial paralysis is also possible if a patient becomes infected with drug-resistant bacteria.
Strains of potentially deadly bacteria found in hospitals include:
- Klebsiella pneumoniae
- Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
- Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE)
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Our double board-certified lawyers have the knowledge, experience and resources to investigate and prove cases of hospital negligence, including surgical errors, birth injuries, medication errors and hospital-acquired infections.
