Most patients go to the hospital expecting to be in better health when they’re discharged than when they were admitted. They assume the hospital’s staff — doctors, nurses, lab technicians, administrative staff, etc. — will provide them with the standard of care they are owed under the law.
But sometimes just the opposite happens. Mistakes are made during the care and treatment of a patient. When a patient is injured or dies as a result of a hospital error in Tampa, the patient and their families have a right to seek compensation for damages caused by the hospital’s mistakes.
