What Infections Can I Get in a Hospital?

Serving Clients Throughout New York City for Close to 30 Years

Hospitals are known for being clean, sterile environments where the sick or injured can go to receive the care they need for a proper recovery. Unfortunately, some hospital environments are not kept clean enough to account for the elimination of the most aggressive types of bacteria that cause tens of thousands of death every year throughout the United States.

When this type of negligence is the cause of infections in hospitals, an experienced attorney may be called upon to take legal action and seek appropriate financial compensation to cover additional medical costs, lost wages and other expenses related to the injury.

Hospital infections are well-known for being very aggressive and are quite resistant to many antibiotics that would normally be administered to defeat the infection. The most notorious type of hospital infection is MRSA, which is a staph infection that can kill a patient in a matter of days, and is most commonly diagnosed in patients who have undergone a surgery or other invasive procedure that may provide access for the infection.

Other types of hospital infections are also quite devastating to their victims and affect respiratory systems, the urinary tract, blood stream and intestines. Hospital infections should be taken very seriously as they are extremely aggressive, resistant to many antibiotics and can adapt quickly to treatment.

Taking Court Action Over Hospital Infection Injuries

There are few things more horrifying than succumbing to staph or another dangerous hospital infection, especially when you expect the hospital to cure your injuries, not cause them. Hospitals and other healthcare environments that do not give enough attention to proper cleaning and sterilization are potentially vulnerable to legal consequences due to their own negligence.

We will take an aggressive approach to your court case and can effectively establish your need for compensation due to injuries that could have been avoided. Our firm is prepared to take every step necessary to achieve the best possible court decision, and we will work hard to see that you get the justice you deserve. Call us today!
