Hospital Acquired Infections
A large percentage of hospital staff training and duties involve the prevention of hospital-acquired infections, like methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). When nurses, doctors, nurses' aides, and other medical facility staff fail to prevent, identify and/or treat infections, patients can suffer severe illnesses, injuries, and even wrongful death. Survivors or survivors' families can often file a successful medical malpractice claim to hold negligent parties responsible and for financial compensation.
