Effectively recognizing when the hospital is the defendant

Despite the fact that New York hospitals often proclaim themselves to be places of healing, the vast majority of medical facilities function as other for-profit corporations do. The services that hospitals offer include providing vital medical care and treatment to you and other patients, but they are still primarily concerned with keeping expenses low and meeting their profit quotas. Such conflicting ideals not only make for a bad business model but they also put patient lives at risk. The attorneys at Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, L.L.P., are well-versed in hospital business practices that contribute to incidents of medical negligence, and are ready and able to hold them liable for malpractice when necessary.

Even in cases where your preventable injury and/or worsened medical condition was caused by a doctor or other medical professional, the hospital that was responsible for overseeing and facilitating your care may have also played a role in the incident. After all, hospitals serve as employers and managers, setting the standards for employee conduct and medical care. It is the responsibility of the hospital to employ, train and supervise all employees, including interns, nurses and physicians. Consequently, the hospital may have contributed to your fall injury if the facility failed to employ an adequate number of nurses and aides.

The hospital is also charged with implementing and enforcing proper standards of care. Therefore, the incorrect administration of medication by a nurse may actually be the result of improper medication protocols on the part of the facility. Beyond that, it is up to hospitals to implement and follow procedures for preventing everything from pneumonia and bedsores to preventable surgical errors.

The success of your medical malpractice lawsuit can depend largely upon accurately identifying any and all liable parties in your case. Learn more about hospital negligence by visiting our web page today.
