Pennsylvania Attorneys Helping People With Hospital Infections

An especially unfortunate aspect of medical malpractice claims relating to death or disability from infections is that in most cases, early recognition and treatment of the infection could have prevented a minor condition from worsening. If you believe that a death or serious medical condition in your family was caused by negligent treatment of an infection, contact the Pennsylvania medical malpractice attorneys at Biancheria & Maliver P.C., in Pittsburgh.

Negligent Prevention and Treatment of Infections

Many infections that go untreated in clinical settings are virulent bacterial infections that are highly amenable to treatment if recognized and treated soon. Poor training, supervision and communication in hospitals are often contributing factors in such negligent treatment cases as the following:

  • Paraspinal abscess
  • Failure to recognize or treat pneumonia
  • Group B strep infection during childbirth
  • Misdiagnosis of osteomyelitis
  • Postoperative infections
  • Sepsis

Negligent treatment of infection cases frequently reflects poor communication between doctors and nurses. A physician might fail to instruct a nurse about risks of particular infections and the corresponding symptoms. A nurse might fail to advise the doctor of warning signs he or she has seen. A doctor might ignore a nurse's otherwise timely advice. This can prove to be fatal.
