Lack of proper care may point to hospital negligence

Anyone can end up in need of medical care. When this situation comes about, New Jersey patients may need to see specialists or go to special facilities in hopes of obtaining the help they need to address their conditions. Unfortunately, hospital negligence could lead to a patient suffering more harm rather than seeing beneficial results.

Hospital negligence is a form of medical malpractice for which negatively affected individuals could seek compensation. One family in another state chose to file suit due to believing that their loved one did not receive proper care at a stroke facility, and as a result, she suffered paralysis to one side of her body and other negative outcomes. The family stated that rather than being treated by qualified attending physicians, the woman was often seen by interns and residents.

Rather than getting better, the woman's condition continued to decline while in the care of the facility staff. The family then later filed a lawsuit against the facility and certain staff members. Recently the court ruled that the hospital and two physicians were negligent in their care of the woman, and she was awarded $25 million.

No one wants to be the victim of hospital negligence as it can drastically change lives, and not for the better. Often, individuals can suffer in ways that result in their needing additional medical procedures or care for the rest of their lives. If New Jersey patients or families have been negatively affected by such malpractice, they may want to consider their options for pursuing justice and restitution.
