Hospital negligence is really just a form of medical malpractice.

People normally associate “medical malpractice” with a doctor’s negligence. But a hospital, nurse or staff member can be negligent as well.


Just like a doctor, when a hospital — either a nurse or staff — fails to properly do something and it causes you injury, then they can be held liable. Hospital negligence can result in the individual person who caused the injury to be held liable. Or it can result in the hospital itself — the superior — to be held liable.

The hospital can be liable for:

  • Failing to properly train or educate staff members
  • Failing to keep accurate patient records
  • Operating the hospital understaffed
  • and more

Why should you file a medical malpractice claim?

Medical professionals have less room for error than the majority of us do in our professions. One simple mistake could cost someone his life or quality of life. So medical professionals need to be held accountable for their actions.

You also deserve compensation for your added medical bills, pain, suffering and lost wages from time off work.

An experienced medical malpractice attorney can help you with all of that.
