Hospitals are safe havens where sick people can receive comfort and care. Florida residents should expect that to be the case. When something goes wrong during a hospital visit, however, they should understand their legal right to seek accountability regarding personal injury.
People who need health care might have slight misgivings about the safety of whatever procedure or diagnosis is at hand. Medical malpractice, however, doesn't always mean a physical injury, misdiagnosis or an unaccounted-for sponge. Patients in Florida are entitled to the best standards of care possible, and that includes care provided by nurses.
