Dangers of Contaminated Instruments in St. Louis
Injuries & Infections Caused by Medical Negligence
When we put our trust and in hospitals and doctors for medical treatment,
surgery and other procedures, we expect that our rooms and the rest of
the hospital will be sterilized. Protection from an infection or illness
that may have spread from another patient requires clean, sanitized equipment
to be used by doctors and healthcare practitioners. Contaminated instruments
can lead to infections that can cause serious health problems, including
wrongful death. These infections keep us in the hospital for extended periods, send our
medical bills sky high, and may rob us of a beloved companion. If you
contracted an illness due to a contaminated instrument in the operating
room or hospital, a personal injury lawyer can provide you knowledgeable
legal counsel and guidance.
Hospitals and healthcare facilities exist for the betterment and maintenance
of our health. It therefore, stands to reason that they are populated
mostly by the sick and infirmed. Germs, disease, and contamination must
be carefully kept in check by proper sterilization. All areas of the hospital
should be held to high standards of cleanliness. Some of the illnesses
and conditions that can occur due to contamination of medical instruments
and equipment include MRSA staph infections, HIV / AIDS, hepatitis, gastrointestinal
infection, pneumonia and other serious diseases.
