Hospital Staff And Nursing Errors

Representing Victims Of Hospital Negligence In Eugene, Oregon

When we check into a hospital, we put our well being in the hands of the hospital staff. From the nurse who takes down our medical history, to the doctor who provides our care, to the lab technicians, to the pharmacist, we must trust that every member of the hospital's care team will properly fulfill their role and provide us with the best possible care.

In the vast majority of cases, that trust is well placed. However, errors in judgment and deviations from the standard of care can occur with disastrous consequences like permanent injury or even death.
