In 2011, 4% of all patients who received medical treatment in a hospital contracted a hospital-acquired infection (HAI), also sometimes called a healthcare-associated infection. Oftentimes, patients, hospitals, and legal professionals view HAIs as simply the cost of doing business in the medical field. However, at the Crosley Law Firm, we believe that these conditions are often preventable and that steps exist which can significantly mitigate the risk. In many instances, preventative measures could have been taken and should be taken in the future to ensure patients’ well-being prior to or following a procedure — including proper sterilization and/or appropriate precautions taken on the part of healthcare providers.
