Infected In the Hospital? It May Be Hospital Negligence
Did you or a loved have a recent hospital stay where you contracted an infection after receiving IV medication? This epidemic has become more and more prevalent leading to the Joint Commission issuing a Sentinal Alert on the misuse of medication vials. This type of personal injury would be considered hospital negligence.
The misuse of vials refers to the reuse of medication vials that are intended for single-use. The reuse of vial intended for single-use increases the patient’s likelihood of contracting infections such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and other bacterial infections, primarily invasive bloodstream infections.
If you or your loved one was seriously harmed by an infection after a hospital stay, contact an experienced and knowledgable attorney to discuss your hospital negligence injury.
