Seattle Hospital Error Attorney
Administrators at hospitals face the same challenges as leaders of any other big business — controlling costs and achieving projected revenues on a quarterly basis. Like many other industries, the health care sector has adopted a “do more with less” mentality. Unfortunately, this can result in poor decisions based on a hospital’s bottom line rather than the quality of care provided to its patients.
Every day, people put their faith — and their lives — in the hands of medical professionals. More often than not, they deliver the best care possible. But when injuries occur due to negligence on the part of nurses, radiologists, doctors and staff, the hospitals they work for can be held financially liable.
A hospital’s personnel may not admit to a mistake that costs you or a loved one lost wages, unnecessary suffering and additional medical expenses. Not only does a hospital face an expensive lawsuit when negligence results in serious injury or death, but it also has to answer to state and federal regulators and lawmakers.
Miracle Pruzan & Pruzan in Seattle, Washington, provides aggressive and knowledgeable representation in medical negligence cases against individual medical care providers, as well as institutions such as hospitals, nursing homes, health clinics and outpatient surgical facilities.
