Negligence in hospitals and nursing homes is a huge concern.
Hospital deaths can arise in a number of ways, including:
- Failure to recognise an infection or a delay in its diagnosis or treatment
- Failure to monitor a patient properly, to record observations correctly and/or follow safety procedures
- Administering incorrect medication
- Failure to get outside medical assistance when required
- Surgical error
Where there is a concern that the hospital death arose from negligent care we can advise you about the Inquest and provide representation if you seek it. We can also explore a hospital death claim for compensation to help with future financial security.
