Medical Malpractice (Medical Negligence) Cases Involving Baltimore Hospitals
Article posted on:06/23/2008
At Silverman, Thompson, Slutkin & White, we are well known in the Baltimore-Washington area for successfully handling many medical malpractice (medical negligence) cases. While the care is generally good at area hospitals, patients and their loved ones need to watch out for themselves or loved ones when they are treated at or admitted to these hospitals. Unfortunately, our office has handled medical malpractice / negligence cases against almost every hospital in the Baltimore-Washington area, including Johns Hopkins Hospital, Johns Hopkins Bayview, University of Maryland Medical Center, Maryland General Hospital, Harbor Hospital, Mercy Medical Center, Sinai Hospital, Northwest Hospital, Greater Baltimore Medical Center (GBMC), Franklin Square Hospital, Howard County General Hospital, Anne Arundel Medial Center and Baltimore Washington Medical Center. Again, while the care at these hospitals is generally good, there continue to be instances of substantial medical negligence that result in patients being severely and permanently injured. In rarer cases, the medical negligence tragically leads to the death of a patient. As a result, our office recommends that each time you or a loved one is treated at a hospital, you establish a relationship with the doctors and nurses who will be caring for you or the loved one, ask as many questions as you feel are necessary and be present as much as possible to oversee what is going on.
