Hospital Negligence

hospital negligence

Hospital negligence occurs when a doctor, anesthesiologist, nurse, EMT, paramedic, pharmacist or other healthcare provider makes a medical error of some sort leading to further illness, injury or death of a patient. These lawsuits are just like physician malpractice but in these cases the hospital or umbrella parent company is liable as the provider is covered by their malpractice insurance. In some cases the negligent provider can also be liable in addition to the hospital, medical center or healthcare facility.
