Ohio Hospital Malpractice Lawyers

American Hospitals are the envy of the World — and people travel from distant Countries to get the benefit of our unmatched Medical Facilities. Whether Emergent, Urgent are Elective, we expect the best quality care from our coveted Hospital System. Patients literally put their lives on the line when they are admitted to the Hospital. In times of serious illness, it is crucial that life-saving care is tendered in a manner that is not life-threatening. While a Hospital does not “practice medicine,” it does have policies and procedures to assist patient safety, care and comfort.

A Hospital Negligence claim may stand alone or be filed in conjunction with a Physician Malpractice claim. A Hospital is responsible for the actions of its Staff employees — and even the best facilities will render substandard care if individual Staff members are incompetent, uncaring, indifferent and/or negligent. Shortfalls in necessary Hospital care may prove tragic to the Patient and their Family — and be deserving of compensation.

Hospital care is complex and may fail on many levels — the key questions are whether the Hospitals employees and agents acted reasonably and in anticipation of foreseeable problems unique to each Patient. Physicians may or may not be employees of a Hospital, but are expected to act within the Hospital’s Staff Bylaws and conform to specified Policies and Procedures regarding Patient Care.

Likewise, Physicians depend upon the Hospital Nursing Staff and other Health Workers (e.g. Laboratory, Radiology, Physical Therapy) to carry out their orders and apprise them of important data on the health of their patients. Lapses in communications between the Hospital’s Physicians and Nursing Staff can prove tragic for the Patient and their Family when a life-threatening condition is involved. Examples of Hospital Negligence include:

  • Failure to follow a Physicians Patient Care Borders;
  • Carrying out apparently mistaken, improper, or unreasonable Physician Orders;
  • Giving medicine or treatment to the wrong patient
  • Giving the right patient the wrong medicine or treatment;
  • Failure to apprise the Physician(s) of important changes in Patient condition;
  • Failure to accurately document the Patient’s condition;
  • Failure to listen and attend to an important health concern of the Patient;
  • Failure to pay attention to concerns of Family members who are with the Patient;
  • Failure to ensure the safety of the Patient anywhere in the Hospital; and
  • Improper or inadequate Discharge Instructions from the Nursing Staff.

If you or a loved one have been a victim of Hospital Negligence — and sustained significant injuries thereby — you need a Law Firm with the experience and resources to bring your claim.
