Hospitals are places where people in Washington go to get better. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. If you have a loved one who went to the hospital, then experienced a worsened medical condition and died, it could be the result of a doctor mistake. At Miracle Pruzan & Pruzan we represent clients who have lost a loved one due to a preventable medical error.
Patients seeking care at hospitals and medical centers in Seattle go in with one basic expectation: that the clinicians treating them are qualified to do. This may come from a handful of assumptions, among them being that a doctor would not dream of offering to perform a service they were not qualified to do, and that a facility would never open themselves up to liability by putting a provider in a position to do so. If and when those assumptions are proven to be false, one may wonder who is to blame: the doctor or the facility?
When you go in for an operation at your local Washington hospital, you want to feel secure that your surgery staff will properly administer any medication they need to give you so that you may complete the operation without a problem. However, as Elcam Medical points out, every year medical errors result in the deaths of 251,000 people, which include incorrect dosages of medication for surgery. These incorrect dosages can have serious or even fatal consequences.
