Do you need an MRSA Lawyer?
Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus infection (MRSA) is a type of staph infection that is often contracted during a hospital or nursing homestay. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, MRSA is one of the most prevalent infections acquired in hospitals, and one of the leading causes of patient deaths in the United States. The numbers for this antibiotic-resistant infection doubled in just six short years between 1999 and 2005. Staph infections can be relatively minor in and of themselves, with few obvious symptoms, but when combined with other health risks such as a cold or flu, the combination can quickly become serious, even life-threatening.
Although staph infections are common in hospitals, patients should always be warned of the risk of infection before treatment begins and given the opportunity to opt-out. Without informed patient consent, a hospital can be subject to a negligence or medical malpractice lawsuit for failure to disclose the risk of infection. Our MRSA lawyers advocate for you or for a loved one in situations where the right to know of possible infections has been breached. A hospital or healthcare facility may also be responsible for harm caused to a patient based on a failure to diagnose or treat an
MRSA infection in a timely manner, even if the infection was not preventable.
