Holding Hospitals And Medical Professionals Accountable
At the Law Offices of Louis J. Bertsche, we represent people who have experienced medical malpractice while admitted to a hospital, nursing home, or other health care facility. To find out how we can help you following a malpractice injury, contact our San Diego law firm.
Any healthcare provider can be held responsible for medical malpractice: a pharmacist who incorrectly fills a prescription; a nurse who fails to monitor a patient; a lab worker who inaccurately documents information used to make a diagnosis.
If you have experienced negligence at a hospital or clinic, or if an elderly loved one is victim to nursing home negligence, our firm can help. Attorney Louis Bertsche has represented individuals and families dealing with medical negligence since 1998. Before that, he defended hospitals against medical malpractice claims. Our firm understands both sides of a hospital negligence claim, and we use that information to help clients dealing with life-changing injuries.
Hospital patients generally have a lot of contact with nurses. Nurses are responsible for monitoring a patient’s recovery, administering medications, and a host of other duties. Unfortunately, patients suffer when their nurses fail to provide satisfactory levels of care:
- Failure to monitor vital signs
- Failure to communicate with doctor
- Failure to carry out physician’s orders
- Failure to move patient to avoid bed sores
- Improper IV placement
- Improper administration of medication
