Charlotte Hospital Negligence Attorney
The “medical profession” is, in fact, a complex industry of many layers and many players. If you suffered harm because of health care negligence in a hospital, the source of liability may lie with one or more of the following:
- A physician employed by the hospital
- A diagnostic laboratory
- A specialist
- A clinic or treatment center
- A therapist
- A psychiatrist
- A pharmacist or pharmacy
- An emergency room or other area of a hospital where you were treated
- Hospital Administration
If you suspect that your injury or loss was from hospital negligence, Brown Moore & Associates, PLLC, encourages you to have your case evaluated by one of our experienced medical malpractice attorneys.
The sooner you ask for a lawyer’s advice, the better. This may be especially true in the case of suspected hospital negligence. Hospital personnel may destroy key evidence if an investigation into your medical negligence case is delayed.
For example, after a foreign object was left in your body during surgery, it is important to keep that foreign object or a photograph of it. This evidence can help pinpoint who was to blame: the surgeon, the nurse or surgical technicians. Premature destruction of evidence can weaken your case for compensation.
Examples of hospital negligence include the following:
- Failing to put up bed rails to protect people who may be disoriented due to medication
- Failure to respond to patients’ requests for help (via room call buzzer)
- Administration of wrong doses of medication
- Medication errors
- Emergency room errors
- Failure to follow patient safety standards
- Inadequate training of hospital medical personnel
- Inadequate supervision of medical personnel within the hospital
