It can be difficult for ordinary people to understand where a doctor's responsibility ends and a hospital's responsibility begins. Some aspects of health care occurring in hospitals fall under the umbrella of an outside entity such as a doctors' cooperative. Other operations are purely the hospital's responsibility. If you suffered harm or if a loved one died unexplainably while in a hospital in Kentucky, T.J. Smith, Attorney at Law, can help you get to the bottom of who should compensate you.
In Many Cases, Both A Hospital And A Doctor Are Responsible When Something Goes Wrong In Inpatient Care
A hospital is responsible for hiring staff, keeping facilities clean and sanitary, informing patients of their rights and other general aspects of health care inside the facility. A hospital is also typically responsible for the medical care that doctors deliver inside the hospital. If you were harmed because of an anesthesiologist's error, both the hospital and the anesthesiologist may be liable for damages.
