Premature Discharge Malpractice
If you’ve been prematurely discharged from a hospital or other medical facility anyplace in the State of Florida and harmed as a result, contact this Fort Lauderdale Premature Discharge Malpractice Lawyer for help. A premature discharge occurs when a hospital releases you before you are ready to be released. This can caused catastrophic consequences.
A premature discharge can occur for many reasons. For example, after a surgical procedure, patients are supposed to be monitored to make sure that they are recovering properly. If they aren’t and are discharged early instead, the hospital will be liable if things take a turn for the worse and the patient’s condition declines.
Additionally, after a surgical procedure, patients should be monitored for infection. Infections can result from many things post surgery. For instance, doctors or nurses with unclean hands, dirty surgical tools or instruments, or improperly ventilated operating rooms (“OR’s”) can all lead to a patient’s developing an infection. If the patient is kept in the hospital and properly monitored after the procedure, an infection can be caught and properly treated. However, if the patient is discharged prematurely, the patient might not be aware that he or she is developing an infection. As such, the infection may worsen and catastrophic results may ensue. If this occurs, the hospital that discharged the patient prematurely may be liable.

Premature discharge also results when a patient is seen in a hospital or other medical facility, proper testing isn’t done, and the patient is discharged instead. Medical providers are required to do proper diagnostic testing in order to determine a patient’s condition and then be able to treat it. If this isn’t done and the patient is discharged instead, the hospital or other medical facility that did the discharging will be responsible if a condition is missed. If the condition later becomes worse because it was missed in the hospital or other medical facility, then the medical facility will be responsible for the worsened condition.
Premature discharge also results when a hospital or other medical facility properly diagnoses a patient’s medical condition but fails to treat it. Situations do arise where medical facilities do the proper tests to determine a patient’s medical condition but then fail to follow up that testing with proper treatment once the condition has been diagnosed. Patients may be discharged while experiencing a dangerous condition, disease or medical event. If this occurs to you, then you may be able to pursue a premature discharge case against the hospital or medical facility that discharged you wrongfully.Direction Provided by this South Florida Premature Discharge Malpractice Attorney
Finally, premature or wrongful discharge may occur when a hospital or other medical facility discharges a patient without giving proper instructions. After medical treatment (especially a surgical procedure), patients need to be instructed properly. There is certain care that they may be responsible for giving their injuries. If a patient doesn’t do this because he or she was never instructed to do so, then the hospital or medical facility that discharged the patient early without giving proper instruction may be liable if the patient’s conditions worsen as a result.
There are various reasons for wrongful discharge. One may be that the patient doesn’t have insurance or has insurance that doesn’t cover the type of treatment needed.Call this Broward County Wrongful Discharge Law Firm
