Did your care provider fail to give you proper medical attention?
When you are wounded, it is important that you receive the proper care that is needed to help ensure that you heal quickly and return to full health as soon as possible. Without proper medical care or instructions for keeping a wound or open sore clean, you may develop an infection. Infections are caused by unsanitary conditions within the body that allow for bacteria or disease to grow. Hospital infections are less common than in previous years but still run rampant in poorly maintained institutions. Some patients seek the medical attention of a doctor in hopes that they can treat a preexisting infection such as staph infection. Negligent doctors may not provide the care and medical treatment necessary to prevent the infection from spreading, which can cause patients to experience serious complications.
In some studies, it has been shown that infections from hospitals claim the lives of more Americans each year than car accidents, AIDS, and breast cancer combined. Infections can be deadly and need to be treated with care. If you were not provided with adequate instruction for how to dress or clean a wound or you were kept in an unsanitary environment that caused the infection, then you may be able to receive compensation. These infections may have been preventable if you had received the care that you needed.
