Yes, a person or their family can sue the Michigan hospital if injury or death resulted from the failure to properly monitor a patient. Individuals in a hospital are there because they are sick, and the hospital in which they are placed is responsible for watching over them and monitoring them to ensure their safety. Proper monitoring should include the hospital to watch a person’s vital signs, such as heart beat, breathing, and blood pressure. It is the responsibility of the hospital to keep a close watch on this and if something goes wrong to act quickly. When a hospital fails to do so, and the patient suffers injury, or even death due to the negligent care of the hospital and its failure to properly monitor the patient, medical malpractice has occurred, and the patient and/or family may have the legal right to sue the Michigan hospital.
