What goes wrong in hospitals?
Although most hospital visits and stays result in positive outcomes for patients and their families, often the most vulnerable are left with devastating injuries and disabilities that have a profound impact on their lives and their families. Far too often as a result of inadequate supervision or inattentiveness on the part of hospital staff, patients are left unattended and suffer falls resulting in further injuries, in addition to those for which they initially sought treatment. In other instances they develop pressure sores as a result of inadequate care.
What are my options?
Falls and development of pressure sore in our hospitals are a complex problem with multiple causes and risk factors. Preventing falls and development of pressure sores is not easy, but there are many measures that can be used by hospitals and nursing homes routinely to prevent patient falls and prevent patients developing pressure sores.
If you believe you developed pressure sores or suffered an injury or illness as a result of a fall at a hospital, and you believe the hospital staff failed to exercise reasonable skill and care in providing treatment to you, you may be entitled to claim medical negligence compensation. You can call us and speak to a specialist medical negligence lawyer who will give you free advice about what to do. It makes sense to get legal advice and find out where you stand.
