Common Causes of Hospital Negligence

Common Causes of Hospital Negligence

Hospital negligence covers mistreatment by any healthcare personnel in a hospital facility that directly causes patient harm. There are many possible forms of medical malpractice that can occur when you are admitted to a local hospital or emergency room:

  • Inadequate Doctor Supervision - The attending physician or assigned hospitalist fails to appropriately oversee interns, residents, fellows, nurses and other staff
  • Coverage Gaps Between Doctors/Shifts - Critical patient updates or warning signs get missed during shift changes
  • Failure to Communicate Test Results - Critical lab reports, pathology findings or radiology results showing abnormalities fail to reach your treating doctors
  • Error Prone Hospital Units - The ICU, cancer center and OB-GYN units statistically have more errors due to complex cases
  • Nursing Shortages - Inadequate nurse-patient ratios can lead to patients suffering from bedsores, infections, falls or medication mix-ups
  • Poor Discharge Planning - Quick discharges to free up hospital beds can result in grave complications once home

Regardless of the specific medical service failure that caused an avoidable injury or death of your loved one, our office will launch a no-obligation review of what went wrong once you contact us to share your experience.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)How Do I Know if My Family Member’s Death Was Due to Malpractice?

No amount of money can make up for losing a child, parent or spouse. Yet financial recovery can ease burdens and also spark changes so the same fatal mistakes get corrected. Warning signs that deadly negligence may have occurred include:

  • A routine surgery unexpectedly goes wrong
  • Doctors fail to follow up on serious symptoms
  • Vital signs were not carefully monitored after a procedure
  • Excessive bleeding or infections occur and are left untreated

Collect all hospital records and have them evaluated by our medical expert team to help confirm if acceptable standards of care were breached.

What Kinds of Compensation Are Recoverable in My Medical Negligence Claim?

Death from medical errors cause immense grief that can't be quantified, but several other categories of losses usually form the foundation for a hospital negligence claim‘s damages. This includes reimbursement for:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of financial support if your loved one was a breadwinner
  • Loss of employment due to trauma
  • Costs of counseling and therapy
  • Loss of household services the deceased family member used to provide

Additionally, some states allow families to seek additional compensation for loss of companionship. Our lawyers thoroughly understand personal injury laws in California so we can seek both economic and non-economic damages.

How Much Is My Case Worth? What Is the Value?

Many factors determine the value of a hospital negligence case. The ultimate medical malpractice settlement or jury award (if a reasonable settlement offer isn’t made) depends on the amount of available insurance coverage, lost wages and medical bills, client age, and the extent disabilities or death has derailed normal life activities.

Should I File a Hospital Complaint Before Pursuing Malpractice?

You have every right to report substandard care or harm suffered either to the hospital patient representative or regulatory agencies. However, understand that hospital complaints alone rarely lead to meaningful changes or compensation. Legal accountability is often required.

An experienced medical malpractice lawyer can properly prepare your complaint for investigators and also simultaneously pursue evidence needed to support civil action. We help clients seek justice on both reporting and lawsuit fronts!

I Signed Consent Forms at Hospital Admission - Can I Still Sue Doctors?

Yes - consent forms you sign upon hospital admission or before surgeries/procedures do NOT prevent you from suing a doctor, hospital or staff later for negligence. The forms only confirm you understand and accept normal treatment risks.

If harm ultimately occurs because proper protocols weren’t followed, your legal rights remain fully intact. Don’t let hospitals fool you into believing you cannot take legal action no matter how serious the malpractice!
