Hospital Negligence Lawsuits

Wyoming Medical Malpractice Attorneys

If Wyoming residents are sick or injured, they trust that hospitals will provide professional and safe treatment to help alleviate their discomfort. After being admitted to a hospital, patients have the right to expect a certain standard of medical care. When this standard of care is not delivered and a patient suffers further harm, it is a devastating event. Victims may be left with escalating medical costs, in additional to their physical pain and emotional turmoil.

Uncovering Acts of Hospital Negligence

Prescription errors are one of the most common mistakes that occur in a hospital. These errors generally involve the wrong type of medication prescribed, administering the wrong dose, or prescribing a medication that the patient is allergic to. Mistakes made during labor and delivery can cause temporary or permanent injury to a child, from injuring the nerves in the baby’s shoulder (Erb’s palsy) to oxygen deprivation that causes brain damage.

The failure to diagnose a condition or illness can deprive a Wyoming patient of the critical treatment they need to stay healthy. The result can be an advanced-stage disease that cannot be treated, and ultimately turns fatal.

Why Hospital Negligence Occurs

Hospital negligence may occur because surgeons are overworked, the surgical staff is inexperienced, or there is a poor communication between the surgical team and other medical employees. Sometimes the entire hospital can be held accountable for malpractice. For example, if a hospital employs a doctor or nurse with a record of providing substandard care, or neglects to fire an employee who abuses pain medication and you become injured, the hospital may be legally at fault.
