Miami Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Baptist Hospital of Miami
Baptist Hospital of Miami has a Consumer Report safety rating of 63/100 for their low ratings on avoiding surgical site infections and communicating about drug information. Baptist Hospital is also no stranger to medical malpractice lawsuits. In 2008, the patient, an insulin-dependent diabetic, was admitted to Baptist Hospital for treatment. While there, recovering in the intensive care unit, the nursing staff did not give the patient insulin, triggering a cardiac arrest response. After spending 40 minutes trying to save her, the doctors realized she needed insulin. Although she was eventually revived, the patient suffered a severe brain injury.The patient was awarded a settlement of $8.8 million in their lawsuit against Baptist Hospital.
When medical facilities provide sub-standard care, patients get injured, sometimes irreparably. Low ratings in a service where life and death hang in the balance is not acceptable. As a patient, you have the right to hold negligent hospitals and medical professionals accountable for risking your life or costing the life of a loved one. The well-being of a patient should be a priority and not an afterthought.
