Minnesota Hospital Negligence Attorney
When a hospital fails to provide appropriate care
When you enter a hospital, you expect a clean, efficient, caring place where sick people can get the care they need. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. Hospitals make mistakes, and those mistakes, when they rise to the level of malpractice or negligence, put patients at risk of serious injury or wrongful death.
The types of errors that can lead to serious patient injuries include:
- Failure to adequately staff the hospital with nurses, aides and other medical personnel
- Failure to properly train and supervise medical personnel
- Failure to keep equipment in good condition and properly calibrated
- Failure to keep patient rooms and operating rooms clean and free of infections
- Failure to have necessary equipment available as needed
- Failure to monitor medicine dispensaries and pharmacies for errors and misuse
- Failure to keep accurate medical records for each patient
When a hospital allows mistreatment of patients because of poor supervision or training, when in-hospital pharmacies have no checks in place to assure proper dispensing and dosages of medicines, when good hygiene standards are ignored even occasionally, patients are at risk for injury and infection.
