The Truth: Hospital Personnel Often Fail to Meet Accepted Standard of Care

All too often, a detailed investigation into the facts and circumstances behind a hospital death or onset of illness will uncover unpleasant truths: namely the fact that hospital personnel and other medical providers often neglect basic sanitary practices and pose very troubling questions:

  • Did the doctor, nurse and other aides neglect to wash their hands, sterilize surgical instruments or otherwise ensure the sterility, cleanliness and safety of feeding tubes, catheters and dialysis ports?
  • Did your doctor wear the same white coat for days or weeks as he went from one sick patient to the next?
  • Did the hospital properly sanitize the bed between patients?

As a result of hospital personnel's negligence in the area of sanitary practices, did you or your family member suffer grave harm after you contracted any of the following? MRSA - methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureous; VRE - vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus; CLABS - central-line associated blood stream infection; C.diff. - Clostridium difficule.
