Diagnosing & Treating Infection
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.
Our lawyers of the New York City law firm of Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo & Plotkin 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
