How To Avoid Hospital Infections
Keeping Infection At Bay
Studies indicate that as much as five percent of all patients will acquire some form of infection during a typical stay in an American hospital. Despite strict regulations regarding sanitation and precautions against infectious diseases, more than 1.5 million patients will acquire a health care-related infection this year, and more than 95,000 people will die.
At DeLuca & Associates, LTD. Attorneys at Law, we are committed to the principle that hospital patients have the legal right to expect sanitary conditions while receiving the highest levels of medical care and treatment. When a hospital fails to follow the appropriate standard of sanitation and safety precautions, patients have the right to make a claim for damages, based on sub-standard medical care.
We empower people to hold medical professionals and hospitals accountable for breaking the rules or taking shortcuts with people’s health.
If you have acquired pneumonia, a urinary tract infection, gastrointestinal infection or an infection of the surgical site while hospitalized, contact us to schedule an opportunity to meet with an experienced Massachusetts and Rhode Island medical malpractice attorney at our firm.
