Hospital Acquired Infections

We all get concerned with cleanliness and infection control in hospitals, especially as some can cause serious health problems.

Home » Personal Law » Medical Negligence » Hospital Acquired Infections

Our lawyers can help if you suffered from a disease or infection picked up unnecessarily as a result of a hospital stay.

There are a number of hospital “superbugs” such as:

• MRSA - Methicillin-Resisten Staphylococcus Aureas
• Clostridium Difficle Associated Disease (CDAD or C-Diff)
• Glycopeptide-Resistent Enterococci (GRE)

If you feel that you or a member of your family has contracted (or thinks they may have contracted) a hospital acquired infection as a result of negligent treatment, you may be entitled to compensation for the injury or loss sustained.

Claims for hospital acquired infections are often complex and it is therefore imperative to ensure that you seek legal advice.  We have a specialist team who can provide advice as to whether you and/or a loved one has suffered negligence as a result of a hospital acquired infection.

FAQs
What is medical negligence?
Medical Negligence is when a medical practitioner such as a doctor, nurse, midwife, dentist or an institutional health provider breaches his or its duty of care to you and you are injured as a result of that breach.
How can I find out if medical treatment was negligent?
During the investigations of your clinical negligence claim we will be required to obtain disclosure of all relevant medical records - both hospital and GP - in the manner set out in the pre-action protocols. Once all of the relevant medical records have been received they will be considered on a preliminary basis. They will then be sent to an independent expert nurse who will index and paginate the records to ensure that they are in some semblance of order.
