For many people currently unaware of the situation, going to a hospital doesn’t require a second thought. However, there are some individuals who have ran into issues involving contamination problems at Porter Adventist Hospital.
A number of individuals who had surgery in the orthopedic and back areas may have been vulnerable to infection as a result of unsterilized and contaminated surgical equipment. If you have been a victim, know that you have rights and options.
What Rights Do Victims of Medical Negligence Have?
The most important thing for individuals to understand is that they have specific rights designed to protect them when they encounter negligence on behalf of the medical professionals trusted to care for patients.
Patients have reasonable expectations to feel as though they can trust the doctor or other staff member designated to help them. When the duty of care is breached, legal action can be taken against the negligent party to seek compensation.
This could mean taking action against the doctor, surgeon, other staff members, or the hospital as an organization. It’s a difficult thing to endure, but there are avenues that can be taken by victims to hold the responsible individual or organization accountable for their actions and we’re here to help.
