Jack Modesett Law provides comprehensive legal representation to victims of hospital and medical malpractice, including birth injuries, surgical errors, nursing negligence, and other mistakes that cause serious injury or death.
Hospitals promise to take care of us when we are sick.
Improper drug administration, surgical mistakes, failure to monitor, retained sponges can all lead to serious injuries and death.
Giving a patient the wrong drug or too much of the right drug can have serious even fatal consequences. Failing to give a drug ordered by the patient’s doctor can have catastrophic results.
Surgical mistakes including retained devices such as sponges are often the responsibility of nurses, employed by the hospital, in the operating room. Proper counting and monitoring can prevent surgical mistakes such as a retained sponge.
When you or a loved one is in the hospital they promise to regularly monitor the patient, check on their vitals, and make sure the patient gets the care and attention they need. All too often this is not done causing serious injury and death. Medical malpractice and nursing malpractice are one of the leading causes of death in the United States. (See Article)
