Miami Premature Discharge Malpractice Attorney
Call this Miami Premature Discharge Malpractice Lawyer if you’ve been sent out of a hospital too quickly and injuries resulted. A premature discharge results when you are sent home from a hospital even though further treatment is really necessary. When this occurs, you may sustain severe injuries as a result.
Premature discharges occur in many different contexts. For example, if you’ve underwent a surgery, you are supposed to be monitored afterwards for any potential complications. Infections can frequently result, for instance, after a procedure or operation. After a surgery, your doctor is supposed to monitor you for potential infections. Infections after surgery can result from many things. This may include dirty surgical tools or instruments, doctors or medical staff/nurses with unclean hands, or unsanitary environments.
If you do develop an infection, your doctor should prescribe antibiotics to treat the infection. However, it is very hard for the doctor to do this if you are no longer in the hospital. Therefore, if you are discharged too early after a surgery and develop an infection as a result, you may have a medical malpractice case against the hospital that discharged you too early.

A premature discharge case may also result when a hospital or medical facility discharges you without doing the proper diagnostic testing. If you present to a hospital or medical facility with symptoms, the doctors should order the proper diagnostic testing to determine what condition is causing your symptoms. Nevertheless, hospitals are oftentimes extremely busy places. As such, doctors or medical staff/nurses may be in a rush to finish with a given patient and move on to the next. If this occurs, doctors may not order the correct diagnostic tests (x-rays, MRI’s, CT scans, ultrasounds, etc.) and may discharge the patient instead.
If this occurs and your condition gets worse as a result, you may have a premature discharge medical malpractice case against the hospital or medical facility that discharged you.
In order to prevail on such a case, you will need to prove that your condition progressed and became worse as a result of the premature discharge. That is, you will need to prove that, if you hadn’t been discharged and your condition had been correctly diagnosed in the hospital, it would have been more easily treatable or wouldn’t have progressed. If you can prove that you would have been in better shape had the condition been caught at the hospital or medical facility that wrongfully discharged you, then you may have a premature discharge medical malpractice case.
Additionally, sometimes a hospital or medical facility will correctly diagnose your condition but will fail to give you the proper treatment for it. The doctors or medical staff/nurses in the hospital might not have the time to give you the treatment, or the treatment may be too expensive. Unfortunately, many hospitals will turn people away because they don’t have medical insurance to pay for your care. If this occurs and your condition worsens as a result, then again you might have a medical malpractice premature discharge case against the hospital or medical facility that sent you home without the proper treatment.Direction Provided by this South Florida Premature Discharge Malpractice Attorney
Lastly, premature discharge occurs when a hospital or medical facility sends you home without proper instruction. After many medical procedures, doctors are required to give you instructions for at-home care, etc. Nevertheless, again this doesn’t always happen because hospitals tend to be overly busy. If you had a medical procedure in a hospital or medical facility, you didn’t get the proper follow-up instructions, and your condition became worse as a result, then you might have a premature discharge medical malpractice case against the hospital or medical facility that prematurely discharged you.
