Hospital Acquired Infections

When things don’t go right, we are here to get you the answers you deserve.

Hospital acquired infections (HAIs) are infections that patients acquire during a hospital stay. These infections can occur for various reasons including exposure to bacteria, viruses, or “superbugs” in a healthcare environment, improper use or handling of medical equipment and poor hygiene practices amongst healthcare staff and patients.

There are several hospital “superbugs” that a patient can contract whilst under medical care:

  • Norovirus
  • MRSA – Methicillin-Resisten Staphylococcus Aureas
  • Clostridium Difficle Associated Disease (CDAD or C-Diff)
  • Glycopeptide-Resistent Enterococci (GRE)

If you or a member of your family has contracted (or think you may have contracted) a hospital acquired infection because of negligent treatment you may be entitled to compensation for any injury or loss sustained.

Our specialist medical (clinical) negligence team can help if you or a loved one have suffered from an infection picked up because of failings in care during your hospital stay.

When things don’t go right with your medical treatement, we are here to help you get the answers you deserve and the compensation you need to get your life back on track.

Hospital Acquired Infection Compensation Claims

HAIs can lead to serious health complications or permanent injuries and increase the length of a patient’s hospital stay which can be both emotionally and financially worrying. In severe cases, if infections are not recognised and treated promptly they can be life threatening especially for those with weakened immune systems. To prevent HAIs hospitals follow strict infection control protocols such as regular hand washing, sterilisation of medical equipment and surfaces, isolation of infected patients and appropriate use of antibiotics.

Compensation claims for hospital acquired infections are often complex and it is therefore essential that you seek legal advice. We will guide you through the compensation claims process, fighting for you to receive the compensation and explanation you deserve.
