South Carolina Insufficient Hospital Supervision Lawyers

Leaving a loved one in a hospital is an act of trust. It is trust not only that doctors and hospital staff will do everything they can to heal the patient, but that they understand the risks that come with the patient’s condition and will watch out to make sure those risks don’t become a reality. All too often, however, hospital staff members leave patients unsupervised when they need attention most. The results can be dangerous and even deadly, as the patient can develop complications or injure themselves without the staff’s knowledge.

Medical professionals who fail to give patients the supervision they need have betrayed the trust that families place in them to care for their loved ones. If you or someone you love was hurt because of insufficient supervision in a hospital, the hospital negligence lawyers at Evans Moore, LLC can help you to fight the medical professionals responsible and hold them accountable.

When Patients Need Supervision

Every patient needs at least occasional attention, but under certain circumstances, it can be dangerous to leave patients alone for any long period. In general, if a patient is at a high risk of experiencing a dangerous injury or complication when alone, medical professionals need to be around to prevent or manage that risk. Here are some of the situations in which patients require extensive supervision:

  • Patients at risk of falling are in danger of injury every time they leave their beds. These patients are often in a weak condition, and falling could cause them serious injury. Elderly patients in particular are at risk of falling.
  • Suicidal patients are at a higher risk of taking their own lives when no one is around to stop them. Many of these patients are not in their normal state of mind, and supervision may be required to keep them from taking an action they would regret and that would devastate their family.
  • Patients who have frequent seizures are at a serious risk of injury when left unsupervised for long periods. For some patients, seizures can strike at any time and can cause them to lose control of their bodies and injure themselves.

Leaving these and other types of high-risk patients unsupervised for long periods of time can be a dangerous form of hospital neglect. Of course, any patient can develop complications and fall victim to neglect if left unsupervised for far too long.
