Information for Caregivers in Oceanside: Increasing Number of Hospital Infection Lawsuits

Caregivers in Oceanside Should Note The Increasing Number of Hospital Infection Lawsuits

We have written before about what we perceive to be an increasing rate of healthcare-associated infections (“HAIs”).  Most of the infections that our clients have had, most notably MRSA and C.diff, were acquired in hospital settings, from what they have told us or our caregivers.  In Oceanside and elsewhere, it’s important for caregivers and family members to be vigilant in hospital settings and act as advocates for their parents whenever their parents are in hospital settings.

Apparently, there has been a corresponding increase in the number of medical malpractice lawsuits by patients alleging that they were wrongfully infected in hospital settings.   For more information see: Hospital Infection Lawsuits – Risk of Infections in Hospitals Cut by Simple Measures.
