What is a Hospital Infection Claim?

What is a Hospital Infection Claim?

Hospital infection compensation claims are in place to compensate victims for issues caused after receiving an infection from a hospital. The victim's physical harm and loss of earnings may be affected after receiving the infection which should have been avoided.

When we are admitted into hospital, we expect to be looked after and cared for by medical staff. A hospital is a place where we go to get treatment when we are ill, and should not be a place where we are exposed to infections. We expect clean and sterile conditions to aid in our recovery.

We do not expect nor should we have to worry about leaving in a worse condition than when we arrived.

Unfortunately, from time to time patients can and do develop infections as a result of clinical negligence, meaning they have to stay longer than expected in hospital or develop illnesses that can cause long lasting health problems and in severe cases, death.
