What are my rights if I acquired an infection in a hospital?


If you go into the hospital and after you get discharged if you acquire or come down with an infection, chances are you got it from the hospital because they're not following adequate infection control practices. While these cases are very difficult, unfortunately in this country the infection rates at hospitals are climbing sky high and these infections that people are getting are resistant to our normal antibiotics, so infections from hospitals are very, very dangerous. Your rights are to contact a lawyer, see if there is any way that it can be related to the hospital and your hospital stay and pursue your rights because otherwise, the infection rates at hospitals in this country are going to continue to increase, unfortunately.
