Hospitals and clinics help countless people every day. Unfortunately, they also cause a lot of people to suffer unnecessary harm, including severe injuries, serious illnesses and death.
Healthcare facilities, such as hospitals, urgent care clinics, surgery centers and doctor’s offices, have a legal responsibility to meet accepted standards of care when providing medical services. These health care entities can be held accountable if they fall below that standard of care and cause a patient to suffer a serious injury.
Holding Health Care Hospitals And Clinics Accountable
At Malone Law, our medical malpractice attorneys have over half a century of experience holding hospitals, clinics, hospital employees and administrators accountable for the devastation caused by their shortcuts, lapses in judgment, mismanagement and other negligent actions.
Hospitals and clinics can be held liable for the negligence of their employees. Although doctors are not typically hospital or clinic employees — they are generally independent contractors who must be sued separately — nurses, technicians and paramedics are employees. And a hospital can be held accountable for their actions if they were performing a job-related activity when they injured the patient.
Our lawyers pursue maximum compensation for clients who have suffered serious harm due to substandard care at hospitals, clinics, surgery centers and other health care facilities in situations involving:
- Medication errors
- Emergency room negligence
- Nurse and physician assistant errors
- Misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose
- Policy and procedure violations
- Inadequate standards and oversight
- Failure to obtain informed consent
- Premature discharge
- Delayed treatment
- Unsanitary equipment
