If a hospital denies responsibility for an HAI, keep all records and contact an experienced attorney who can examine the circumstances in which you acquired the infection and assess the likelihood of filing a successful claim against the hospital and its staff.
It is very unlikely that a hospital will accept liability after a patient makes a claim or reports an injury from an infection contracted in its facilities. However, when a patient gets an HAI, it’s the hospital that should be held responsible for failing to maintain high standards of cleanliness.
If a hospital does deny responsibility, the first step you should take is to contact a law firm that is experienced in medical malpractice cases. The Law Offices Of Sean M. Cleary in Miami has years of experience in dealing with claims of hospital acquired infections.
