During a stay in hospital, you expect to be given the best treatment possible, and to recover from your illness as quickly as possible. Sometimes though, the hospital is poorly organised and cleaned, and infections can occur.
Because of the nature of a hospital, many patients with weak immune systems and open wounds are vulnerable to contracting MRSA, Clostridium Difficile and other superbugs. There are many ways in which a superbug or infection can arise:
Delay in recognising and treating infection
Proceeding with operations when an infection is present
It is possible that any infection you acquired in hospital will have prolonged the illness that brought you to hospital in the first place. They can have serious and profound effects on patients, and can result in long term, or even permanent damage. This stressful time for you and your family can lead you to needing compensation for financials loses and for the pain suffered during the lifetime of an infection.Medical Accident Group has extensive knowledge in dealing with cases of hospital infections, and our expert solicitors are amongst the most experienced in the country and regularly deal with many patients from the same hospital or trust that has delivered negligent care in ensuring that the environment for patients is safe, clean and free from infection.
