Common types of hospital infections

A hospital infection can lead to serious injuries in an already ill patient. In some cases, an infection can be fatal. At our firm, we help injured clients and clients who have lost a loved one, after contracting an infection in the hospital, such as:

  • Staphylococcus, also known as staph infection
  • Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, also known as MRSA infection
  • Antibiotic-resistant infections
  • Clostridium difficile, also known as C-diff

These infections can be spread by hospital staff, surgery error as well as improperly sanitized surgical instruments, implants or catheters. In a hospitalized person, most of these infections can wreak havoc on an already-compromised immune system.

At our firm, we diligently work to hold hospitals and their staff accountable for surgical mistakes, medical negligence and medical malpractice. We will thoroughly investigate your case and work to secure medical expenses and lost wages as well as damages for pain and suffering. If you have lost a loved one after an infection, attorney Toby Schaffer will help you bring a wrongful death claim.
