Claiming Compensation for a Hospital Acquired Infection

Hospital acquired infections have become well publicised in recent years. The outrage in such cases is understandable as many hospital acquired infections are wholly preventable. We rightly expect hospitals to be places where people recover, not contract a completely new infection.

The most common hospital acquired infections are MSRA, C Difficile, and GRE. These are bacteria that can be found anywhere, but are most commonly found in hospitals and healthcare centres.

If you have acquired an infection through a stay in hospital, then you may be entitled to financial compensation. Contact us at Manners Pimblett and we will assess your claim.

Hospital acquired infections claim

The most common hospital acquired infections are ones which survive from skin to skin, or object to skin contact, and which infect people when entering the body or blood stream. It follows that alcohol and disinfectant are the best way to prevent these diseases from spreading.

Unfortunately however nurses, doctors, other patients and visitors may fail to follow correct procedures. As a consequence a patient may contract an infection. This lack of care and medical attention could be considered as negligent, and could lead to significant financial compensation. Contact us at Manners Pimblett for more information on a potential claim.

Factors to consider for a hospital acquired infections compensation claim:

  • Were you screened for harmful bacteria when admitted to hospital?
  • Was the infection correctly and promptly diagnosed?
  • Did you receive the correct treatment?
  • Were all aspects of your care appropriate, from cleanliness to wound care, monitoring treatment to the appropriate antibiotics?
