Health care facilities are responsible for the diagnosis and treatment
of patients harmed by infections caught both before and during the administration
of medical care. When localized and systemic infections are not addressed
and properly treated, patients may be able to pursue financial compensation
through a medical malpractice lawsuit.
The lawyers of the New York City law firm of Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold,
McCartney & Giuffra LLP have handled numerous personal injury (i.e.
MRSA) cases involving medical care providers' failure to:
- Identify the seriousness of an existing infection
- Thoroughly review infection symptoms
- Take samples of infected areas
- Match appropriate antibiotics to an infection
- Note personal medical care histories with treatment plans e.g., failure
to note resistance to antibiotics
- Ensure that an infection has resolved completely
- Detect or properly treat MRSA Infections
- Hospital-acquired infections
