Common Occurrences of Hospital Negligence

Hospital malpractice occurs whenever medical negligence or malpractice has taken place in a hospital setting. This can include errors by surgeons, physicians, nurses, technicians, or other staff members. It can also include errors made by a hospital, such as failing to supervise a patient.

Some common examples include the following:

Who Is Liable in NJ Hospital Malpractice Cases?

Since a hospital is responsible for its employees’ actions, they can be held liable when those actions are negligent. If a hospital employee hurts a patient, the hospital itself may be considered responsible. Nurses, medical technicians, paramedics, and other staff members are typically employed by a hospital; however, most doctors are not “employees” of the hospitals in which they work.

A doctor may be considered an employee, rather than an independent contractor, if the hospital is in control of their work hours and vacation or if the hospital has control over the fees they are allowed to charge. If the doctor isn’t an employee, you will have to seek action against them instead of the hospital. It is crucial that you determine whether or not they can be held accountable.

When you work with Levinson Axelrod, P.A., our compassionate New Jersey lawyers can help you determine if hospital negligence played a part in your case. Reach out to us now for a free consultation.
