St. Louis Hospital Errors
You need a medical malpractice lawyer!
When people enter hospitals for medical treatment, they are expecting to receive professional care that will effectively address their medical conditions. What they do not expect is for their condition to be made worse, or for additional injury or illness to be sustained. Unfortunately, that is too often the case, as hospital errors cause countless injuries and deaths across America every year. Some of the more common hospital errors that can occur include:
- Medication errors: Patients may receive incorrect medication, medication in the wrong dosage, tainted medication, medication that reacts harmfully with other medications they are already taking or medication that causes an allergic reaction
Surgical errors: Patients may have operations done on the
wrong body part or have foreign objects left in their body after a surgery has been completed
- Misdiagnosis: A patient's doctor may fail to order to proper medical tests, fail to review test data in a timely manner or fail to refer to a specialist that is needed for an accurate diagnosis
If you were a victim of hospital negligence, then it is crucial you contact a St. Louis personal injury lawyer today, as you may be entitled to substantial compensation for the physical harms you have sustained.
