What Is Hospital Negligence?

Hospital negligence refers to situations where a hospital or its staff fails to provide an appropriate level of care or safety to a patient that results in harm or injury. Negligence can involve various incidents, such as misdiagnosis, medication errors, surgical mistakes, or inadequate patient care.

Medical malpractice is a subset of hospital negligence and refers to cases where a medical professional, such as a doctor, nurse, or surgeon, causes injury or death to a patient due to negligence or substandard care. It is a specific type of negligence involving healthcare providers.

Duty of Care

When hospital negligence occurs, it isn’t a simple mistake or oversight—it’s a violation of a patient’s sacred right to receive proper care.

The duty of care implies that the hospital is obligated to act in a manner that upholds the well-being and safety of its patients. This obligation includes providing a standard of treatment that is considered acceptable within the medical community and adhering to professional standards and protocols.
