Counting the Cost of Medical Malpractice in Hospitals
The capability of doctors, nurses and staff at American hospitals to cure disease and treat injuries can be truly miraculous. But when hospital medical malpractice occurs – when doctors and nurses abuse the powerful tools of today’s medicine or when they ignore their patient’s needs – people get hurt and people die.
According to the prestigious National Institutes of Health, over 100,000 people die every year because of mistakes made in hospitals. And each of these deaths is an unnecessary tragedy. Don't let you or a loved one become a statistic. Call Polewski & Associates in Little Rock today to discuss your case for free: 501-404-0062.
The Tragedy of Chances Lost
Hospital medical malpractice and Wrongful Death cases are among the saddest our malpractice team sees. Our Wrongful Death and malpractice team handles cases where patients died because no nurse ever responded to a call for help, where emergency room doctors thought that a dying person was “faking” his complaints, because doctors ignored symptoms that a nurse wrote in the chart, or because a doctor was “too busy” to come and evaluate a patient himself. We have represented families whose children died because they were given the wrong drug, and families who lost their fathers because he wasn’t given a drug that was ordered.
Our clients have died because a hospital didn’t report the results of a blood test, and because a doctor ignored those results when the report was made. The list of tragic injuries due to hospital medical malpractice goes on and on.
And in every one of those cases, the reason that people were hurt or died was the same one: doctors and nurses weren’t paying proper attention, or weren’t following basic safety rules.
