Hospitals And Nurses Can Also Be Negligent
Negligence does not just occur at the hands of doctors. All levels of hospital personnel are involved in a patient’s care, and negligence unfortunately occurs at all levels. Doctors depend on staff members to meet the standard of care in their various practice areas. Mistakes and errors by nurses, inpatient care staff, pathologists, technicians and even records staff can lead to complications and serious injury.
