Hospital malpractice includes any type of medical negligence that occurs in a hospital setting, including errors by doctors, nurses, technicians, and other hospital staff.
Hospital malpractice occurs when the staff of a hospital engages in negligent medical care or treatment of a patient, which results in the patient's harm. If you are injured when receiving treatment or assistance in a hospital, you must be able to prove that your injury is a direct or proximate result of the hospital's negligence towards you.
If an individual is an employee of a hospital, the institution is responsible if that employee acts in a manner that harms a patient. Such persons as nurses, medical technicians, and paramedics may be held responsible for acting negligently towards a patient, which might constitute hospital malpractice.
