What are Hospital Institutional Errors?

Hospitals have a duty to act reasonably carefully in the administration and management of the institution. When accidents or incidents occur as a result of the practices set by management at the institution, there may be a claim for an institutional error against a hospital. This may include any of the following:

  • Negligent Supervision: Negligent supervision occurs when the hospital fails to adequately supervise medical professionals while conducting their day-to-day activities.
  • Failure to Maintain the Facility: When a hospital fails to maintain the hospital in such a way that will prevent injuries, the hospital can be held responsible for any injuries that result.
  • Negligent Credentialing: A hospital can be held liable when they fail to ensure that the doctors, physicians, and staff are adequately educated, trained, and certified prior to allowing them to preform surgeries.
