Fotolia_74198154_M-1-300x214.jpgWhen a person is admitted into the hospital, they assume that the medical professionals working there will cure them without complications. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and new problems can arise from the negligence of the hospital personnel.

Hospitals are filled with germs which can cause serious infections. Patients should hope that the hospital staff will take every precaution to ensure their safety, including frequently washing their hands, disinfecting any medical tools, and making sure that the proper steps are taken to mitigate complications.

Unfortunately, patients contract infections through the fault of hospital staff. The patient may be completely cured of the initial illness or injury only to stay in the hospital longer because of an infection, leading to further physical and financial burdens. In some cases, the infection may be so bad that the patient may die.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about 75,000 people die from hospital infections each year. Many of these are preventable and many could have been cured.

Serious infections that lengthen a hospital stay can result in higher medical bills, more time out of work, and the potential for other health problems that can haunt them in the future. If you believe you have obtained an infection in a hospital as a result of a staff member's negligence, it is important that you retain the services of an experienced medical malpractice attorney who can provide you with assistance and determine if you have a case. Contact Cohn Lifland for a consultation to discuss your legal matter.
