Causes of a Hospital-Acquired Infection
Although there are a number of factors that could contribute to the contraction of a hospital borne infection, most can be prevented. Apart from regularly washing their hands, keeping hospital rooms clean and using sterile equipment, staff members must also abide by strict medical guidelines.
Causes of a hospital-acquired infection:
- Providing inadequate post-operative care
- Administering antibiotics for more than 10 days
- Failing to disinfect all touch surfaces in a patient's room
- Using unsterile invasive devices (catheters, IV lines, etc.)
- Treating patients while suffering from an illness
Suffering both emotional and physical harm, medical malpractice victims deserve the best legal help. We are prepared to hold the negligent medical party responsible for their actions in a hospital-acquired infection case. On top of physical injuries, medical bills, and time off work, we fight for compensation for emotional tolls such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, shame, grief, and more. We expect medical professionals to be just that, professionals. When we receive medical help, we are often at our most vulnerable and trust doctors to help instead of hinder.
