Miscommunication in Hospitals

A Law Firm Helping The Injured In Syracuse Recover Compensation

When you receive medical treatment for an illness or condition, more than one person is responsible for your care. It's very important that everyone involved in treating you communicates effectively, to make sure you are diagnosed and treated properly. When communication breaks down, you can suffer harm as a result. When this happens, the hospital injury attorneys at Cherundolo Law Firm, PLLC hold negligent parties accountable.

Contact Our Lawyers

The members of a health-care team in a hospital can include doctors, nurses, pharmacists, anesthesiologists, nurse's aides, dietitians, and therapists. All work together toward the diagnosis and treatment of your illness and condition. But when negligence leads to the wrong information being passed on about your care, it can result in injury or make your condition worse.

Some examples of miscommunication in hospitals include:

  • Failing to pass on information about a patient to a doctor
  • Failing to notify a doctor about test results
  • Improperly entering information into medical records
  • Mislabeling medication or patient samples
  • Giving patients incorrect discharge or medication instructions

When communication errors result in illness or injury, additional medical treatment is needed, at additional expense. And a patient may be left unable to work, resulting in lost income. You have the right to seek financial compensation for these and other damages.
