DID YOU GET A HOSPITAL-BORNE INFECTION?

Seek the Assistance of Our Brandon, FL Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Hospital-borne infections are something every in-patient medical facility must fight. Close to 100,000 people die each year from the ravaging effects of preventable or treatable infections, and nearly twenty times this number suffer severe effects. These infections can be contracted at any point in a patient’s hospital stay, and patients are most vulnerable to possible infection during a severe illness or after a surgical procedure.

While surgical wounds are likely to develop an infection, there are many cases of infection from a lack of “clean procedure” within the facility. If you have contracted an infection or lost a loved one to an infection resulting from a hospital stay, speak with our Brandon medical malpractice attorneys at The Florida Law Group to find out if you are owed compensation.

Infections Contracted in Brandon, FL Hospitals

Nosocomial infection is the name given to an infection which is acquired within a hospital. These infections may be viral or bacterial, and they can either lead to miserable or life-threatening conditions. The common perception of a hospital as a sterile environment can be far from actual reality of most hospitals and healthcare institutions.

These infections can be passed in the following ways:

  • Patient to patient
  • From a doctor
  • From a nurse
  • From staff present during a surgical procedure
  • While administering IVs
  • While tending wounds
  • While inserting catheters

Failure to change into fresh gloves, fresh gowns, and neglecting hand washing are also common causes of the spread of infections to patients and staff. Our Brandon medical malpractice lawyers are highly knowledgeable and adept at holding hospitals and medical professionals liable for avoidable blood stream infections, pneumonia, urinary tract infections, and surgical infections.
