PA Medical Malpractice Attorneys Represent Hospital Errors and Infections Victims in Pittsburgh and Throughout Western Pennsylvania
There are approximately 100,000 deaths every year due to hospital infections, and when these types of errors occur, the damage can be devastating to you or a loved one. Hospitals are meant to be clean and offer patients a clean environment for treatment. Patients in hospitals can be particularly vulnerable because they are already not well and that’s why they are in the hospital to begin with. If the hospital is not properly clean or the tools being used on their patients are sterile, then that can have devastating effects on their patients. Even though not all hospital infections or errors can lead to medical malpractice, it’s important to consult an experienced attorney in these cases to determine the validity of your claim.

Common Ways for Hospital Errors and Infections To Occur in the Pittsburgh and Western PA Area
Infections can spread in a variety of ways throughout a hospital, but recognizing the most common infections is very important to litigating a medical malpractice case. For instance, some hospital employees may not wash their hands properly, and it leads to pathogens that cause you to get sick even further. Here are some common infections that can occur and be very damaging to you or a loved one:
- E. coli
- Clostridium difficile (C. diff.)
- Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
These are just some of the most common hospital infections, but there are others that can occur. If you have been infected by any of these bacteria or any other bacteria while being treated in a hospital, you may be entitled to compensation from the hospital.
