Hospital Errors Caused by Medical Malpractice

There is the potential for hospital error at virtually any stage of a patient's treatment or care. From the moment that the patient is admitted to the hospital and even after he or she leaves, there may be situations that would warrant a medical malpractice case against the hospital for an error, mistake or act of negligence. For example, a patient may be misdiagnosed when he or she first visits the emergency room, resulting in his or her discharge from the hospital when something is truly wrong. Additional types of hospital errors include medication errors, birth injuries, surgical errors, infections caused by unclean premises, anesthesia errors, postoperative infections, and much more.
