Yes, you may be able to sue the hospital for not giving a blood thinner to a patient who has a blood clot. Hospitals must be keenly aware of a patient who has a blood clot and prescribe a blood thinner to “bust” the clot. Failing to do so will cause significant injury, harm, or even death to the patient. Therefore, when a patient does have a blood clot, and the hospital fails to give a blood thinner to the patient, the hospital may be found negligent and you may be able to sue the hospital for resulting injuries.
Situations where a blood clot must be recognized and treated before the patient suffers significant harm or death gives rise to a medical malpractice lawsuit against the hospital. If a patient dies as a result, you may be able to sue the hospital and file a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit.
