In times of emergency, patients turn to hospitals and surgical facilities for treatment. Unfortunately, the quality of care provided at one hospital can be substantially different from what is provided at another facility. If a hospital makes a mistake, it can result in serious injuries, or even death, for the patient.
Some of the common injuries that may occur at hospitals as a result of a medical mistake or negligent care are:
- Bedsores or Pressure Ulcers
- Surgical Mistakes
- Anesthesia Problems
- Misdiagnosis or Failure to Diagnose
- Prescription errors
Alan Ripka & Associates provide free consultations to review the circumstances surrounding the treatment to determine if an injury could have been prevented. If you, a friend or family member suffered an injury as a result of a hospital’s negligence, request a free hospital malpractice lawsuit evaluation.

Hospital malpractice lawsuits
The quality of care at a hospital is significantly influenced by the training, education, supervision and resources provided to the employees.
In many situations, hospitals and medical facilities do not provide the doctors and nurses with the necessary resources to effectively treat and manage their patients.
As a result of insufficient training, supervision and resources, the doctors and nurses are placed in a position to fail. These situations are often largely created by motivations to increase profits for the corporations which own the hospital.
During the course of a hospital stay, nurses and other medical staff must make split second decisions. When they are not properly educated and placed in a position where there are insufficient resources to render the appropriate standard of medical care, devastating injuries can result.
When mistakes could have been prevented, the patient and their family should not be responsible for the damages that are caused by the hospital’s negligence.
