Hospital Error Claims Across the U.S.
Talk to Our Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Recently, it was reported that hospital errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States, with 440,000 Americans dying annually from such errors. Worse is the fact that many, if not all, of those errors could have been prevented. Hospitals are often subject to a breakneck pace, as well as an overworked and poorly supervised staff—all things that could mean catastrophic injuries and even death.
Some of the most common hospital errors include:
- Medical and prescription errors
- Mistakes made with anesthesia
- Failure to properly monitor a patient
- Improper use of a medical device
- Failure to properly treat infections
- Failure to communicate with doctors
- Failure to diagnose issues in a timely manner
- Wrong or missed diagnoses
- Failure to read a report, lab, or radiology results
