South Carolina Inadequate Staffing Lawyers

Any hospital visit for you or a family member is filled with stress and concern. You can only hope that the hospital is prepared to care for their patients and assist them in any way possible. When a hospital functions appropriately, patients and family members are more at ease, despite the stressful situation, knowing that they will receive the care they need and deserve. However, when a hospital fails to provide essential patient care due to inadequate staffing, the results may lead to severe consequences that slow recovery, lengthen patient stay, and may result in a patient’s death.

Inadequate staffing is a sign of serious hospital negligence and must be taken seriously. It is important that hospitals perform their jobs to the best of their abilities and that you or your loved ones receive adequate care. Nonetheless, when this ideal situation does not happen, you do not have to suffer alone. The South Carolina inadequate staffing lawyers at Evans Moore, LLC are prepared to help you fight for your rights and ensure that the hospital takes responsibility for their actions.

Consequences of Inadequate Staffing

Nurses play a vital role in the care and well-being of the patients in a hospital. They attend to much of the recovery of a patient and administer necessary tests, such as blood pressure, temperature, and blood sugar, to better understand the patient’s bodily functions. Additionally, the nursing staff assist in making patients more comfortable and helping them with daily tasks, such as bathing or using the restroom when necessary. When nurses have more patients to treat, they cannot be as attentive as a patient often needs them to be. A Penn State study indicated that for every additional patient a nurse cared for, patient mortality rate increased by 7%. This shocking statistic demonstrates one of the many dangers of inadequate staffing. Below is brief list of other possible consequences.

  • Increased risk of urinary tract infections
  • Patient infections
  • Bedsores
  • Pneumonia
  • Increased medical errors
  • MRSA
  • Additional injuries
  • Increased hospital stay
  • Accidental death

Any of these consequences resulting from improper care due to inadequate staffing are unacceptable. The hospital must take responsibility for the serious dangers their negligence causes patients.
