Miami Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Westside Regional Hospital
Westside Regional Hospital has a Consumer Report rating of 41/100, with low ratings for communication about drug information, surgical site infections, avoiding C. difficile infections, and avoiding surgical death, among others. These are all complaints that should never be associated with a facility that is meant to care for some of the most vulnerable members of society. Hospital errors often either cost the lives of patients or irreparably damage them in ways that greatly lowers their quality of life.
In 2012, J.B. was admitted to Westside Regional Hospital for complications related to obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), where X-rays were ordered for her. When the transport techs moved her, however, they caused her spine to sustain a fracture, failing to provide Ms. B. with a reasonable standard of care. She died later that year and it was concluded that the spinal fracture was the contributing cause. A wrongful death lawsuit was filed against Westside Regional Hospital, which settled in favor of Ms. B.’s estate.
