Hospital Acquired Infection Compensation Claim Information
Hospitals are places where you can receive treatment for any kind of illness or injury. We expect to be admitted and then discharged once the illness has been treated. However, there is the risk that your condition will be made much more serious due to a hospital acquired infection. These infections can be extremely dangerous.
How do Hospital Acquired Infection claims happen?
A hospital acquired infection is simply that; an infection or illness which you have acquired in hospital. HAIs are becoming increasingly common, particularly in NHS hospitals. These medical facilities are overcrowded and underfunded, which can all too often lead to simply mistakes in hygiene and cleanliness taking place.
The longer you stay in hospital, the greater the risk of an infection. This is particularly true if you are placed on a large treatment ward with patients, visitors, doctors and nurses coming and going at all hours of the day and night.
