Taunton Lawyers Who Thoroughly Investigate Your Case Leaving No Stone Unturned
The initial steps of the investigation center on the reason a patient was in the hospital to begin with. Further analysis must be undertaken concerning any risk factors the patient may have had for contracting an infection.
Most importantly, an investigation and evaluation of the hospital's policies and procedures in place to reduce infection must be examined. A determination must be made as to whether the hospital had a sufficient infection control plan, whether the nursing staff and physicians in the hospital followed the policies and procedures, and/or whether any other explanation exists as the reason the patient contracted an infection. There certainly can be times when a hospital is not negligent and did all that is reasonably required to prevent infections; however, even in this situation a hospital and medical staff may be at fault for not quickly diagnosing and treating the infection, which thereby leads to further problems for the patient. Often it is not difficult to establish that an error was committed pertaining to the policies and procedures implemented to reducing infection exposure, or the failure to promptly recognize that an infection has developed.
