Actions that injure patients should never happen in a hospital setting. But negligent acts leading to physical harm too often occur in the very facilities intended to save lives, cure illness, and heal injuries. A failure to act can also be a type of negligence, and is especially grievous when abuse is allowed to occur in an assisted living center or nursing home. In the worst cases of hospital negligence, wrongful death can result.
For these reasons, it is important to be aware of the top signs that a hospital or care center may be negligent. With further questions, reach out to a lawyer experienced in medical malpractice to discuss the details of your case.
