Common Causes of Health Center Mistakes
Various situations could lead to hospital errors in any department of a hospital. Hospitals may be understaffed, causing existing staff to work overly long shifts and suffer from sleep deprivation. This could easily lead to medication errors and miscommunications that might have disastrous results for patients.
Failing to establish clear protocols or follow protocol for patient care may also result in harm to patients. Some of the most common causes of hospital errors may include the following:
- Lack of communication and patient record-keeping between staff members
- Inadequate knowledge and training to properly care for patients
- Understaffed facilities that result in patient needs going unmet
- Failure to follow hospital procedures for patients with certain medical conditions or injuries
Any hospital errors that occur can place patients at risk of harm. When patients are already trying to recover from serious illnesses or injuries, creating additional medical problems through hospital errors may quickly make a bad situation worse. Individuals who suffer injuries due to hospital errors may benefit from seeking the services of one of our hospital error lawyers in Long Island.
