Hospital treatment

It’s likely that most of us, either because we need medical treatment ourselves or someone close to us does, will experience hospital care at some point in our lives.

When we go into hospital, we expect the very best standards of hygiene, cleanliness, staff care and clinical and medical treatment. And the in the majority of cases, this is exactly what is provided.

However, our experience shows us that sometimes these standards aren’t met, with lasting medical consequences.

Accident and Emergency

A & E departments are busy places, where medical decisions have to be made quickly and often under pressure.

Injuries which are missed or misdiagnosed can mean individuals suffer pain, damage or have to undergo further, and potentially avoidable, medical procedures.

On occasions patients are discharged from hospital when they should be admitted. Sometimes their follow up care is overlooked.

Hospital care

Many patients will require 24-hour medical attention or specific health, hygiene or dietary regimes during their stay in hospital.

Attention must be paid to a patient’s existing requirement for medication, perhaps for an unrelated condition.

If, for whatever reason, this is not properly recognised or provided, this can have a serious affect on a patient’s health no matter how good the medical treatment is.
