health_stethescope_v01_1152Not all patient injuries or adverse outcomes are preventable. However, thousands of patients are injured or die each year as a result of preventable adverse events (PAEs). Many times this is due to the failure of hospital personnel to follow their own basic standards, procedures and protocols written and adopted to ensure the kind of attention to detail and follow through required to properly care for a patient. If you or a loved one has suffered serious personal injury or if you have lost a loved one as a result of a PAE, contact an attorney experienced in hospital malpractice to advise you right away.

Be aware that in most cases, PAEs are immediately reported to the administration and internal risk management department who initiate steps to minimize or defeat a liability claim. The sooner you seek the advice of experienced legal counsel to preserve evidence and protect your interests the better.
