Florida Hospital Orlando

If a patient undergoes a heart catheterization procedure at Florida Hospital Orlando, is it too much to expect the nurses to stay with the patient when they first get him out of bed? As Orlando medical malpractice lawyers we have seen many incidents where Orlando hospitals have failed to protect their patients when they are getting out of bed. Many patients who have undergone a significant procedure and those who have been confined to bed for an extended period of time should never be left alone when first allowed out of bed.

Most people who seek our help are decent, honest people who never thought about the fact that hospitals are in the business of making money. While many hospitals do many positive things, patient care is not the first priority. Hospital CEOs understand that profit is a priority.

While businesses are created to make money, when it comes to hospitals and other health care facilities, people’s lives and safety should be the first priority. Sadly, when staffing is cut to improve profits, it is the patients who suffer. When injury or death occurs these hospitals should take responsibility for the harm done. Unfortunately, that rarely occurs. Hospitals understand that many patients will never realize that medical malpractice has occurred. Obviously, if a patient does not contact an Orlando medical malpractice lawyer when questions about the medical care and injury arise, the Orlando hospital will not be held accountable for its wrongdoing.
