On behalf of Hastings Law Firm P.C. posted in Hospital Negligence on Thursday, June 25, 2015.
Texas hospitals are required to provide safe environments for all patients. In order to provide a healthy environment conducive to wellness and recovery, hospitals and staffs should strive to provide appropriate supervision and assistance to every patient. When a patient is not properly monitored and sustains an injury, it could be considered hospital malpractice.
Patients can sustain unnecessary injuries when a hospital fails to monitor immobile, severely injured or ill patients. These patients are prone to falls, developing bedsores and may not be able to properly communicate needs. Lax supervision can lead to medication errors, lack of nutrition and even infection. Unfortunately, patients susceptible to medical complications are often too weak or ill to speak up regarding substandard medical care.
Family members of Texas patients who have developed unexpected infections, show signs of neglect or who have been subjected to pharmaceutical errors may act as advocates for their loves ones. Often, hospital negligence is a result of under staffing, lack of proper training for care givers and other avoidable issues. When an individual needlessly suffers harm while in a hospital, family members would be wise to refuse to accept the standard explanation of unavoidable complications.
Hospital malpractice is a serious issue, but victims and families often feel daunted by the process of filing a civil claim against the liable doctor, care provider or hospital. Our team will work on behalf of these victims, seeking deserved compensation for financial and emotional suffering. We will work to find an appropriate legal remedy for your situation and strive to prevent the same harm from befalling another person.
