What Is Considered Hospital Negligence?
Our hospital malpractice attorneys help severely injured clients, or the surviving families of fatal negligence victims recover damages through settlement or trial in situations such as the following:
- Medication errors
- Failure to monitor blood pressure, temperature, or other vital signs
- Nurse’s failure to follow the instructions of a physician
- Physician’s failure to read or respond to nurse’s reports
- Ineffective prevention or treatment of postoperative infections
- Improper use of heparin or other anticoagulant protocol
- Failure to protect patients from falls in bed or in transit
Because North Carolina medical malpractice claims must be supported by an expert’s medical opinion that the patient’s injury or death resulted from the defendant’s failure to satisfy a recognized standard of care, we carefully examine the facts of your claim with medical professionals to make sure that we have a reasonable likelihood of proving liability against the defendant doctor, nurse, technician, or hospital.
