Oregon Hospital Negligence Lawyers

Hospitals are legally required to ensure the physicians, nurses and technicians on staff are professionally licensed and credentialed by the appropriate professional board. Frequently, physicians slip through the cracks, or lose accreditation due to disciplinary reasons or lack of continuing education, but are not removed from the hospital staff. No matter how experienced the doctor, nurse or technician might be, if he or she lacks the appropriate credentials and licensure, it is illegal to practice medicine or dispense medical care in a hospital in Oregon or Washington.

Hospitals in Oregon and Southwest Washington Are Required to Hire Licensed Doctors

If you suffered a misdiagnosis or improper medical treatment during a stay in a hospital in which you were treated by an uncredentialed medical provider, talk to a medical malpractice litigation attorney at Miller & Wagner, LLP, in Portland. We know the legal issues related to hospital liability and nursing errors and work with specialists to investigate to determine whether you have a strong case for recovering compensation for your injuries.
