Iatrogenic Infection Attorney in San Francisco
Iatrogenic Infections in Health Care Facilities
Iatrogenic infections are those infections that are caused by accidental or negligent medical actions. The actions that lead to such infection are myriad, and include many insufficient hygiene practices, such as hospital staff failing to properly wash their hands, failure to use anti-bacterial soap, and failure to take the proper precaution and care when invasive procedures are administered utilizing surgical instruments. There are many infections one can contract while in a hospital or care facility, including staph infection and c-diff, and these have the capacity to cause serious injury or illness beyond the medical condition the person is already dealing with.
If you or a loved one has suffered an iatrogenic infection due to negligence or malpractice, contact a San Francisco medical malpractice attorney who can assist you in pursuing fair injury compensation from the parties at fault.
