Negligent Training in Hospitals

In many medical malpractice cases, there are more parties at fault than just the doctor, nurse, or other medical professional who was directly involved in the case. One factor that can lead to medical malpractice is a hospital’s failure to offer adequate training to every employee who requires it.

It is the responsibility of the hospital to ensure that new staff members are experienced enough to work safely with their patients. If you or someone you love has been seriously injured by a nurse, doctor or other medical professional who lacked adequate training, contact the Sheboygan medical malpractice lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at (920) 459-8000.

Reasons for Negligent Training

It may appear to be to a hospital’s immediate advantage to avoid extensive training programs. Some of the potential issues related to training are:

  • Financial loss: Training a new staff member can be very expensive.
  • Time loss: The time during which a staff member is training is time he or she is not on the floor helping the hospital to function.
  • Organization: A well organized training program must be put into place before any training can occur.

Despite the fact that sub-par training can be imminently helpful to the hospital, the long term effects of an unskilled staff member are never worth it. Patients can be seriously harmed if hospital employees aren’t fully trained in their work duties.
