Florida Hospital Negligence Lawsuits
Any form of malpractice or negligence that takes place in a hospital and causes physical injury to a patient is considered hospital negligence. Any improper action by a staff member of a hospital, from a doctor to a nurse to admitting staff, pharmacists, and technicians, can be considered hospital malpractice in Florida. However, plaintiffs in Florida hospital negligence lawsuits face a very high legal standard that requires the victim to prove that the hospital owed a legal duty to the patient, that it in fact failed to uphold the standard of care expected of such a facility, that the breach of care caused an actual injury, and that the injury in question damaged the patient in some way. Having an experienced hospital negligence lawyer on your side is vital if you are going to pursue a hospital negligence lawsuit in this state.
