Hospitals Have Attorneys. So Should You.
Most medical malpractice cases involve an element of hospital liability. Facilities and health care systems bear responsibility for the physicians, nurses, aides and other staff members they employ.
If you are a victim of medical malpractice, this means that you are likely fighting the hospital’s attorneys as well as the individual doctor’s attorneys. To protect your right to collect compensation, you will need an experienced, aggressive attorney to stand up for you.
At Shelly Law Offices, LLC, our hospital liability lawyer knows how to hold negligent parties and their insurance companies liable for the compensation you need. When the opposition refuses to negotiate, attorney Shelly pursues these cases at trial.
Protecting Patients In Pennsylvania
The hospital and its health care system can typically be held responsible for the conduct of its employees. For example, if the hospital hires a nurses’ aide without doing required background and employment history checks, it may be held liable for injury or death that the person causes. This is only one example, however. Hospital liability extends to many areas of medical malpractice, including:
- Negligent care
- Failures in staff and physician communication
- Failure to properly credential medical providers
- Hiring inexperienced or unqualified staff
- Surgical errors
- Understaffing and lack of supervision
- Patient falls
- Emergency room errors or negligence
- Pharmacy errors
- Failure to implement necessary procedures for surgical care and infection control
- Outdated or unsafe medical equipment
