When an injury or death occurs at a hospital as a result of a medical error, many times it can be the fault of the hospital itself rather than the doctor or surgeon providing care to the patient. The attorneys at Rush, Hannula, Harkins & Kyler, L.L.P., are experienced in answering the question of whether the hospital itself is at fault for a medical error that causes injury or death.
In Washington, a hospital may be held responsible when one of its employees or agents is negligent in the performance of their duties, for example:
- Emergency room errors
- Performance of nursing duties
- Administering incorrect medication
- Laboratory errors
- Radiology errors
- Failure to timely report patient’s condition to the doctor
- Improper staff training
- Inadequate staffing
Depending upon the facts, the hospital may also be held liable for the actions of doctors and other medical care providers who are not employees.
