Aside from births, hospitals are generally a place that you hope to avoid, but if you do unfortunately find yourself tucked up in a hospital bed it’s usually to receive the best care available. Although in many situations doctors and nurses do a fantastic job to ensure that you are both fit and healthy, in some situations they can be negligent towards you and this could leave you with serious injuries, especially if you are already suffering from medical problems.
