Hospital acquired infections - Superbugs
Hospital infections such as MRSA and Clostridium Difficile have recently been given a lot of media attention. While these infections exist in the wider community, they are particularly dangerous in a hospital environment because of the presence of open wounds and the vulnerability of many hospital patients to infections.
Hospital infections claims for superbugs (like MRSA and C diff) arise in a number of ways:
- Delays in recognising and treating infection
- Inappropriate treatment
- Proceeding with elective operations when an infection is present
We are receiving more and more calls from clients who ask us to investigate claims relating to hospital acquired infections, rather than the original surgery or treatment which they initially attended hospital for. There is a very wide category of infections that can be acquired in hospital, which can have serious and profound effects on patients.
We may be able to assist you in making a claim for acquiring such infections and the knock on effects which they have on your prolonged recovery period, perhaps the need for further surgery or loss of earnings. We have extensive experience in successfully pursuing such cases on behalf of our clients.
If you believe you have a legal claim relating to Hospital Infection, for further information or if you believe you have suffered as a result of Medical Negligence, please contact us.
