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.
