Hospital negligence cases involve a hospital employee injuring a patient due to negligence while they are on the job. Commonly, these cases are brought against doctors and nurses that are working too many hours and overwhelmed with patients. These cases can also be common with under-qualified doctors, or doctors giving treatment in an area outside of their specialty.
Here are some examples of medical negligence that might lead to a lawsuit:
- Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis
- Misreading or ignoring laboratory results
- Unnecessary surgery
- Surgical errors or wrong site surgery
- Improper medication or dosage
- Poor follow-up or aftercare
- Premature discharge
- Failure to recognize symptoms
