Hospital acquired infection

Although standards are in place to maintain safe and sterile environments in hospitals, unfortunately on occasion hospitals can fall below this standard. This can lead to acquired infections which can make the patient’s current condition worse and hinder their recovery. This may be caused by a number of reasons which stem from the fact that patient’s immune systems are reduced in their capability to fight infection.

Some of the most common hospital acquired infections claims we deal with are:

  • MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus)
  • C. Difficile Infections (Clostridium difficile)
  • Enterococcal infections
  • Acinetobacter infections

This list is not exhaustive and there may be other hospital-acquired infections that are not listed here.
