Hospital negligence is a claim against a hospital due to negligent treatment or a lack of suitable care from medical professionals.
A hospital medical negligence claim often includes a never event, where a surgeon removes the wrong organ or operates in the wrong place.
Removing the thyroid on the wrong side is a common example of a never event.
Another never event is when a surgeon operating to remove your gallbladder damages the common bile duct. Massive corrective surgery, known as a roux-loop hepaticojejunostomy, is required to fix the negligence.
You will spend more time in hospital and will need longer to recover. Your solicitors will make this part of your compensation claim.
