What is Hospital Malpractice?
Hospitals and clinics are separately liable for injuries arising from the negligence of nurses, technicians, administrators, or on-staff physicians. The law requires health care providers to meet or exceed an accepted standard of care determined by what the average, reasonable health care provider would do in the same or similar circumstance.
Examples of hospital malpractice include:
- Emergency room misdiagnosis
- Failure to monitor vital signs
- Failure of nursing to notify physician of changes in patient status
- Fall injuries or being dropped from a gurney
- Medication errors
- Lab errors
- Security breach leading to assault or rape
- Failure to obey hospital policies or procedures contributing to an injury
