West Virginia medical malpractice attorneys
When patients are hospitalized to treat an injury or illness, they expect to get better. But some develop an infection during their hospital stay that leaves them in even worse health. Hospitals are required to take steps to prevent these types of infections. When their neglect leads to infection, the medical malpractice attorneys at Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC help victims recover compensation.
Hospital infections, also known as nosocomial infections or hospital-acquired infections, are able to spread due to several different factors. Another patient or staff member could be infected without knowing and then spread the bacteria around the hospital. And poor management and faulty procedures at a hospital create the conditions that allow an infection to spread.
