Hospital & Pharmacy Errors

A hospital should be a place of safety and healing — and it usually is. But when a hospital fails to meet a reasonable standard of care, and when that failure results in injury or wrongful death, contact a hospital malpractice lawyer at Lamkin, Van Eman, Trimble & Dougherty in Columbus. We also help those who have been harmed by pharmacy mistakes.

Hospital Malpractice Lawyers Representing Injured People For More Than 45 Years

Our hospital malpractice law firm understands how difficult it can be to deal with an illness that is made worse by the hospital or pharmacy you trusted to care for you or your loved one. For example:

  • Nursing errors: Nurses are expected to properly monitor patients' vital signs and notify the physician of unexpected changes. If you believe a loved one was injured by nursing malpractice, let us know.
  • Failure to medicate: Were the doctor's medication orders carried out accurately? Talk to a hospital malpractice lawyer about your situation.
  • Unsafe equipment or processes: Unsafe side rails, a patient rolling off a lab table and improper transfers can cause serious injury.
  • Negligent credentialing: Did the hospital fail to adequately screen a physician?
  • Misreading lab results: Was a doctor or nurse negligent in reading a lab test? Did that result in injury? Talk to a medical malpractice attorney.
  • Prescription errors: Did the pharmacist fill the prescription with the wrong medicine, the wrong dosage or the wrong administration directions? Were there inadequate warnings with the prescription?
  • Recalled drugs: Was the patient harmed by a dangerous prescription drug? Our product liability lawyers can advise you.
