Negligent Health Care Providers
In order to pursue a claim under this particular legal theory, a claimant may allege that the hospital:
- Negligently or recklessly hired or supervised a health care provider when they knew or should have known that he or she could foreseeably cause harm to patients.
- Failed to make sure employees and other hospital personnel have the appropriate education, license, and/or training necessary to properly carry out their respective duties.
- Provided inadequate patient care when failing to hire enough staff to handle patient needs.
It is important to note that a hospital can also be legally liable for a health care provider's negligence if said hospital negligently hired and/or retained him or her.
