hospital negligence malpractice lawyer - Texas Hospitals are frequently found responsible for the negligent actions of their employees. Many such cases involve radiology, nursing errors and pharmaceutical errors. Hospitals are found to be responsible for their employees’ actions under the doctrine of respondeat superior. Hospitals can also be negligent for their own actions in failing to have adequate policies and procedures in place to ensure that quality care is provided to our loved ones.

Hospitals also have a duty to ensure the physicians who are privileged to work in their facilities are qualified to practice medicine. As such, the privileging and credentialing process is another area where hospitals can deviate from acceptable standards of care.
