Individuals currently enrolled in the U.S. Armed service as well as veterans are eligible to receive medical care at VA hospitals, which are better equipped to deal with the unique health challenges and injuries that army personnel face. Veteran hospitals serve over 5 million Armed service, and there are over 1,000 such facilities across the country that serve these individuals. However, just because these facilities exist and provide a high level of medical care to Army personnel and veterans doesn’t mean that they are not exempt from medical negligence. In fact, medical malpractice in VA hospitals is so rampant that the agency collectively pays out over $100 million in damages to over 3,000 individuals hurt by negligent physicians. If you’ve been injured by a negligent doctor at a VA hospital, don’t chalk it up to bad luck: pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit so you can recover damages and rebuild your life after it was destroyed by the careless actions of a medical professional.

Medical malpractice can be described as the provision of negligent or substandard medical care to a patient who then goes on to get injured or suffer complications. It is important to realize that there is a certain standard of care set by the medical board that all physicians must adhere to in order to ensure patient safety. Should one deviate from this standard of care at a VA hospital, the surviving patient or their loved ones are legally able to hold the individual as well as the hospital accountable for their actions by way of a VA hospital malpractice lawsuit.
Here are some of the common instances of VA hospital medical malpractice:
- Diagnostic errors such as late diagnosis of cancer or diagnosing you with a completely different and incorrect illness
- Surgical mistakes such as puncture and laceration
- Medication errors
- Patients contacting infections such as sepsis due to negligence
- Doctors not getting informed medical consent prior to operating
- Poor and substandard managing of ongoing chronic illnesses
