Kent Failure to Treat Lawyers

When a Hospital Fails to Protect You From Infection

The last place you expect to get an infection is from a hospital setting, where you expect to be placed in a clean and sterile environment. Sadly, we have clients come in suffering from an infection in the very place that should have prevented it. Others come to us after a doctor failed to treat an infection that should have been properly diagnosed.

Our job at Greaney Scudder Law Firm in Kent, Washington is to hold that medical facility accountable.

The infection rate in hospitals and nursing homes is out of control. You put your trust in a doctor or hospital personnel to care for you and protect you from illness. When that trust is violated due to a non-sterile setting in an operating room, ambulance, or healthcare facility, you are entitled to compensation.

Infections Can Be Caught in a Hospital

Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, better known as MRSA, is a strain of staph infection resident to many antibiotics. MRSA is one of the most common hospital-acquired infections. At Greaney Scudder Law Firm, we have represented clients who suffered from that form of infection and many others. We also compassionately advocate for family members who experienced the death of a family member when their doctor failed to properly diagnose or treat an existing infection.

Nursing Homes Are Breeding Grounds for Infections

Patients with weaker immune systems and the elderly are most at risk of MRSA and various healthcare-related infections. Nursing homes can be a breeding ground for infections. A place that is supposed to provide care for those who cannot care for themselves should not have an environment that causes illness.

An Important Note on Procedure

If you have been harmed by medical malpractice, or someone close to you has, it is important to be informed about the procedures that apply in those cases.
