Hospital-Acquired Infection

Severe damages can come from a MRSA or similar infection acquired in a hospital due to negligent practices observed by the organization.

When a stay in hospital results in you or a loved one suffering with an infection, it may be that you have suffered as a result of medical malpractice. If this is the case, then because we all rely on healthcare professionals to care for us when we are unwell and in hospital, if they negligently cause us undue suffering, we are well within our rights to make a medical malpractice claim.

Did you know?

Medical Malpractice payouts were over $3.8 Billion in 2014 in the United States?

There are numerous examples of hospital-acquired infection (HAI) that include:

  • Pneumonia
  • Gastrointestinal Illness
  • Urinary Tract Infections
  • Primary Bloodstream Inefctions
  • Surgical site infections
  • Others

One of the most common cases of medical malpractice, that is also, unfortunately, also one of the areas that people fail to seek legal help with, is the development of a hospital-acquired infection. A recent case that demonstrates the possible severity of hospital infections involved a professional football player who developed MRSA after receiving a simple Cortizone shot, and as a result underwent more than 9 surgeries to treat the infection.
