Hospital Negligence And Medical Malpractice
Hospital negligence is frequently the underlying cause of medical malpractice. The hospital and/or health care system bears responsibility for its employees and services. In Ohio, hospitals are liable for the negligence of the medical providers they employ. In some cases, the hospital may be liable for the negligence of contract physicians and employees as well. We will determine whether this is applicable in your case.
