New Jersey Hospital Negligence Lawyers
When patients are admitted to hospitals for treatment, it is often because they lack the means to safely and adequately take care of themselves. Therefore, they rely heavily on hospital workers to provide them with the food, attention, and treatment they need to survive more or less comfortably. Consequently, hospital workers have the responsibility of delivering acceptable and attentive care to their patients.
If you have suffered injury or illness as the result of hospital negligence, then you may have a legal right to damages. Contact the New Jersey hospital negligence lawyers of Levinson Axelrod, P.A. today at 800-346-5529 to learn more about your options.
What is hospital negligence?
When hospital workers fail to deliver reasonable care to their patients, who then suffer injury or illness as a result, they may be cited for hospital negligence. Hospital negligence may come in many different forms, including the following:
- Failure to adequately monitor patients
- Allowing the spread of disease among patients
- Providing inadequate care
- Neglecting patients
- Distributing incorrect medications or dosages
- Failure to exercise adequate hygienic practices
- Failure to respond to changes of a patient’s condition in a timely manner
- Record-keeping errors
The results of these negligent errors can be quite devastating. Patients can suffer unnecessary complications of their current conditions or, in their immunodeficient states, contract another, serious illness.
Victims of hospital negligence have the right to take aggressive legal action against the institution responsible for providing them with such poor treatment.
