Hospital Errors Lawsuits

Our Cody, Wyoming Law Firm Handles Hospital Error Cases

When you are admitted to a hospital, you expect to be treated for an illness, disease or injury in an effective and timely manner. You expect to be healed. You don’t expect to leave hospital in a worse condition than before you entered. Tragically, thousands of patients are injured each year as a result of hospital errors and medical malpractice. Negligence by doctors, nurses, technicians, pharmacists and hospitals can have devastating consequences; they can even be fatal.

Hospital errors can occur at anytime and for a variety of different reasons. Some of the most common include:

  • Medication errors — receiving the wrong drug, an improper dosage of a drug, or an allergic reaction to the drug that should never have been administered
  • Surgical errors — including wrong site surgery, wrong patient surgery, negligently performed surgery or leaving a foreign object or surgical tool in the body
  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis — failing to order and correctly review test data in a competent and efficient manner
  • Obstetrical mistakes — resulting in birth injuries such as Cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy and kernicterus.
  • Emergency department errors — including patient intake and procedural errors
  • Infections — resulting from poor sanitary conditions

Who is Responsible in a Hospital Error?

Given that hospital errors can occur in many ways, it is often difficult to determine who is ultimately responsible. A resident doctor, a consultant specialist, an anesthesiologist, nurse, paramedic technician, or even a member of the hospital’s administrative staff may be guilty of negligent conduct. If you suspect that you or a loved one has been seriously injured as result of a preventable hospital error, it is vital that you talk to an experienced medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible.
