Hospitals can be liable for the medical malpractice and negligence of their employees, doctors, staff nurses, administrative personnel, and medical technicians. Standards of care and rules must be followed by all hospital employees to ensure that patients are given the best health care. If physicians or other hospital employees were careless, lacked proper skills or disregarded established rules and procedures, the hospital can be held responsible.
Hospital negligence includes:
- Illegible writing in medical records, causing doctor’s orders to be incorrectly carried out
- Failure of physicians to remain educated and competent after receiving their license
- Surgical mistakes
- Poor post-operative care
- Incorrect drug and anesthesia administration
