Can I sue a hospital?
A patient who suffers serious injury or death in the hospital can sue the hospital itself if the hospital violated one of its duties of care to the patient. These hospital-specific duties include providing proper supplies, providing a safe facility, using ordinary care in selecting its employees, and supervising everyone who practices medicine at the hospital. The standard of care requires a hospital to use the same degree of care that a reasonably prudent hospital would acting in the same or similar circumstances. A violation of this duty may be established by hospital accreditation standards or the hospital’s own bylaws.
