Hospital-Acquired Sepsis? Call a Lawyer

By Grant Law Office on November 26, 2018

When you are admitted to a hospital, you expect that the treatment you receive there will improve your health. But all too often, this is not the case.

Entrusting your health to a medical facility and its staff is, essentially, entering into a contract—a contract wherein the hospital pledges to treat you with a professional standard of care. If the hospital and its staff are negligent, and you suffer injury, then they have broken their contract with you and can be held liable for medical malpractice.

Threat of a “Nightmare Superbug” Looms on the Horizon

By Grant Law Office on October 5, 2018

While the term “nightmare superbug” may seem melodramatic, it is how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) described the danger of antibiotic-resistant bacteria spreading throughout the country.

By Grant Law Office on May 2, 2018

When someone undergoes surgery, he is putting his life and his health in the hands of a surgical team. Though we should be able to trust these medical professionals to take the utmost care throughout the procedure, if they fail to do so and a patient suffers injury, they can be held accountable.

What’s “The July Effect”?

By Grant Law Office on July 2, 2017

Medical students take their first steps as interns each July, by beginning work at teaching hospitals all across the country. As with many other cities, Atlanta, Georgia, has a number of these institutions. Interns at teaching hospitals have very little experience in diagnosing and treating the illnesses and injuries of their new patients. This has become the basis of a long-standing joke among professionals in the medical field. “Don’t get sick in July,” you may hear a seasoned doctor say in good humor, but are there serious threats to patients being treated by inexperienced medical interns?
