Sigmon Law, PLLC (713) 333-7979 Medical Malpractice Law Firm
Violations of hospital patient safety standards are increasing at an alarming rate as hospital staff are often poorly trained and supervised, or expected to take care of more patients with fewer resources—sometimes both.
As a result, hospitals can become some of the most dangerous places imaginable—particularly considering the vulnerability of the average resident patient.

The National Academies of Sciences estimates between 44,000 and 98,000 people are killed each year by medical errors in hospitals. Hospital negligence can occur when an employee – such as a nurse, pharmacist or medical technician – acts incompletely or improperly or otherwise violates a patient safety rule.
These violations are known as deviations from standard of care. This means that they did not provide the type of care that other members of the profession would have under the same or similar circumstances. The result may be a patient injury, a clinical complication, or even a life-threatening condition.
