The word "malpractice", is usually linked with a physician, nurse, respiratory therapist, pharmacist or other healthcare provider that was responsible for a mistake, act of negligence, injury, or death. However, many times the hospital itself can also be accountable for any malpractice or negligent acts carried out by its employees.
Hospitals Are Accountable For Their Employees' Actions
Most likely, the doctor, physician assistant, anesthesiologist, radiologist, emergency room physician, nurse, nurse practitioner, or other health care provider is an employee of a hospital. If that employee causes injury or death to you or a loved one, while they were performing a job-related task, the hospital can also be held accountable for negligence.
Hospital Malpractice Comes In Many Forms
Hospital malpractice can occur when there are medication errors, falls, anesthesia mistakes, wrong site surgeries, failure to stabilize a critical patient, improper training of staff, retained surgical sponges, surgical errors, misdiagnosis, failure to order proper tests, and failure to consult a specialist. While patients trust medical professionals to provide a high duty of care, this does not always happen. Other forms of hospital malpractice include birth injuries, inadequate staffing, improper use of medical equipment, improper maintenance of medical equipment, insufficient policies or protocols, inexperienced medical or nursing staff as well as many others.
