We all view hospitals as a place where we can receive treatment to help us recover from and illness or injury. Generally we are confident when we are faced with a stay in hospital that the treatment we receive will be beneficial to aid our recovery! Unfortunately, on occasion things do go wrong and when this happens it can lead to more serious illness, or even lead to our developing other infections.
Whilst our hospitals and other care facilities have hygiene codes to follow to limit our exposure to further illness sometime the standards around these codes can slip resulting in exposure to other illnesses and infections, the most commonly known being MRSA. Not all infections are a result of standards slipping but on occasion this is the case and as a result of this you may be able to make a claim for medical negligence.
