Holding Hospitals Responsible For Negligence
People go to hospitals with the expectation that they will leave healthier than when they arrived. In most situations, that is what happens. However, when safety protocols are ignored, the health and wellness of patients is put at risk.
If your loved one was the victim of hospital negligence, an experienced lawyer can help ensure the negligent parties are held accountable. My firm — The Law Office of Michelle Cohen Levy, P.A. — helps families in Fort Lauderdale and throughout Florida receive the answers, closure and legal support they need.
Representing Negligence Victims In A Variety Of Matters
I help families file medical malpractice claims after their loved ones suffered from hospital negligence, including:
- Contracting sepsis or another infection
- Nursing errors due to lack of training
- Medication errors, including administering the wrong medicine or the wrong amount
- Patient falls due to lack of supervision
- Getting dropped
- Lapses in communication between doctors and nurses
The cleanliness standards in hospitals are set high, and everything should be cleaned to perfection. However, when germs and bacteria are not properly cleaned, patients with already weakened immune systems can get sick quickly. For example, when bacteria get into the bloodstream and turns into sepsis, it can become deadly if it not diagnosed and treated almost immediately.
An unclean hospital, lapses in communication between doctors and nurses, patients who are left unsupervised — these are all inexcusable mistakes that can lead to serious or fatal injuries.
