Hospital malpractice includes any type of medical negligence that occurs in a hospital setting, including errors by doctors, nurses, technicians and other hospital staff. One of the most common forms of hospital malpractice includes hospital monitoring, or lack of monitoring, causing the patient injury or harm. The failure to properly monitor a hospital patient can give rise to a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Buckfire & Buckfire P.C. represents patients seriously injured by medical professionals and the families of people who died after receiving negligent medical treatment. Compensation for hospital malpractice victims may include the following:
- Medical expenses
- Lost Income
- Cost of care
- Pain and suffering (includes physical pain, disfigurement, disability, loss of quality of life and emotional distress)
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 file a lawsuit against the hospital.
Some common situations that may involve hospital monitoring malpractice include:
- Alarms from patients bed being ignored by nurses and staff
- Failure to check on a patient often enough
- Unrecognized conditions of the patient while in the hospital
- Patient “codes” and it turns out the hospitals CPR equipment is broken or missing key pieces
