Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers assist victims of malpractice and their families in lawsuits against hospitals in Michigan. Complaints against hospitals are frequently made to hospital administrators by patients who have experienced poor care and treatment in the hospital, but these patients seldom feel like their concerns have been seriously considered. Most times, the hospital will either deny that the patient was provided substandard care or will provide a lengthy explanation of the treatment without addressing the actual patient complaint.
The fact is that hospital errors are all too common, as they attribute to 225,000 deaths per year. However, the number may even be larger than that, as 80 percent of hospital errors go unreported by hospital employees, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Patients who complain to hospitals and do not receive a satisfactory response do have the legal right to file a medical malpractice lawsuit when a patient is injured or dies due to errors in a Michigan hospital. Some of the most common hospital errors include:
- Wrongful Death
- Misdiagnosed cancer (lung cancer, cervical cancer, breast cancer)
- Birth Injuries/Cerebral Palsy and shoulder dystocia
- Misread x-rays and pap smears
- Emergency room error
- Medication error & mistakes
- Surgical error
- Anesthesia error
- Bedsores & decubitus ulcers
- Hospital-based infections
- Falls out of bed and during patient transfers.
