Lawsuit Help for Imroper Sterilization of Surgery Equipment
Surgery can only occur in a sterile environment due to the risk of infection. Individuals that go to hospitals due to a serious health conditions are already experiencing lowered immune systems, and as a result, they must be protected from any and all infections at all costs. To this end, surgical instruments are disinfected as well as sterilized. Doctors and surgeons are required by law to follow an accepted standard of care when providing medical services to all their patients, and during surgery, this includes thoroughly sterilizing their equipment prior to operating on an individual. Some of the infections that you can contract due to improperly sterilized or unsterilized equipment can quickly morph into a blood infection known as sepsis which if not treated within 24 hours can kill. To this end, if you suffered health complications because of the fact that surgical equipment wasn’t sterilized, you may be able to file a medical malpractice lawsuit in order to recover money damages and seek closure, and we’re here to help with that.

It is estimated that over 1.7 million infections occur in a hospital setting each year in the US, which lead to close to 100,000 deaths across the country. What is unnerving is that almost all these infections may have been prevented if physicians followed proper sterilization protocol as laid down by the CDC. It is important to understand that there are no accidents in law, and that an element of negligence may have been what caused your hospital-acquired infection.
