How can a hospital be found negligent?

Most Denver area residents will spend time in a hospital at least once during their lifetime. Patients rely on hospitals to treat them when they are sick, and they expect to receive good, compassionate care. But, occasionally, the unthinkable happens and a patient is injured due to hospital negligence.

There are many reasons why a hospital can be found liable for negligence. One is if an employee hurts a patient by acting incompetently. Many times, nurses, nursing assistants, aids, medical technicians, and support staff are employed by the hospital. If they acted negligently, the hospital can be held accountable. A hospital could also be held negligent if they give privileges to a doctor who is incompetent or dangerous.

If a patient believes they have been injured because of hospital negligence, they may want to speak with an attorney who specializes in personal injury. An attorney can review the situation surrounding the injury and help determine what happened and who is at fault. They understand that their client may now be facing unexpected medical bills and injuries along with the emotional trauma that goes along with suffering from an unexpected injury. An attorney can hold the negligent party responsible for their mistake. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages.

No one expects that the hospital that is charged with their care will cause them to suffer additional injuries and stress. But, when there is a negligent hospital worker who makes a mistake, the hospital should be held accountable so that other patients are not hurt as well.
