Hospitalists and Hospital Liability

If your doctor cannot attend to sudden symptoms or a worsening health condition while you are admitted to a hospital, you may be treated by a "hospitalist" — a doctor hired by the hospital to provide care in this situation. Hospitals are required to carefully screen the doctors they hire to ensure that patients are treated by competent and credentialed physicians.

If you suffered an injury due to improper medical treatment by a hospital doctor in Oregon or southwestern Washington, you are entitled to full compensation for all of the damages you suffered as a result. Examples of improper medical treatment include:

  • Failure to monitor your medical condition
  • Medication errors
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to read your medical chart
  • Failure to give clear instructions to nurses
  • Surgical errors
  • Infections resulting from unsanitary conditions

As a former medical malpractice defense attorney, Dave Miller has access to an outstanding network of physicians who can review the facts of your case and identify signs of negligence by a medical provider.
