Determining if a Medical Mistake is Hospital Negligence

Hospital negligence cases can be very complex because of all the different personnel, companies, and products involved in the care of just a single patient. By consulting with a medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible, we can investigate your case and discover if there was negligence, what it was, and who was responsible. Proving malpractice at a hospital involves several key steps:

Duty of Care

Was the victim under the care of the hospital and did the medical professional act with due diligence and follow the procedures for diagnosis and treatment that any such professional would expect to do? 

Breach of Duty

If it is found that a healthcare organization, a member of its staff, a doctor, or other medical professional failed in to do their job in alignment with duty of care, then there has been a breach of duty.

Causation of Injury

If the breach of duty caused the injuries, illness, worsening of the condition, or death of the patient then there has been hospital neglect.

Responsibility for Damages

The hospital and any other related party are responsible for all financial and non-economic damages resulting from the hospital's negligence.  

Who Is Liable when there is Hospital Negligence?

When medical malpractice occurs at a hospital, there can be one or several parties liable. This is because of the nature of all that is happening at a medical facility and the many healthcare professionals working there. The hospital, urgent care, or other such facility, is responsible for all of the activities, personnel, and ultimately, the quality of care. Examples of parties that may be liable for an instance of malpractice include:

  • Hospitals
  • Urgent Cares
  • Pharmaceutical Manufacturers
  • Doctors
  • Physicians
  • Surgeons
  • Specialists
  • Nurses
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Radiologists
  • Pharmacists
  • And Other Healthcare Professionals and Personnel
