Whether you are ill or require an operation, you may find yourself admitted to the hospital. The majority of hospitals endeavor to provide high quality medical care to patients. Even the best hospital staff, however, can make mistakes. Mistakes are made in judgment as well as performance. You may be injured because the hospital failed to properly diagnose or locate a problem. You may also be injured because of an error that arose during your stay. These injuries are referred to by many names. Some common terms are clinical negligence and hospital negligence. They are almost unlimited in description. They include the hospital failing to locate something on a an x-ray, giving you wrong or wrong amount of a medicine, operating on the wrong part of the body, injuring an organ or part of the body during surgery, leaving in a sponge or other medical equipment during surgery and leaving the floor wet so you slip and fall. In the event you are injured as a result of medical negligence or hospital negligence, you should consult with an attorney that specializes in handling negligence claims such as Alexander Harris Solicitors.
