Compensation claims for a lack of hygiene during a hospital stay

The National Health Service in the UK is regarded as one of the best medical services in the world today, providing the highest-standards of care to thousands of patients throughout the year. In general, the NHS is a well-organised health service offering a high quality standard of healthcare, but sometimes these standards aren’t achieved and you could be the unfortunate patient to be affected by this. Although many precautions are taken to ensure a high level of hygiene, these initiatives can be often overlooked and as a result it could lead to you contracting a hospital infection. This can be a very serious matter and could have a serious effect on your health, so if you believe you have been a victim of this then you could be eligible to make a claim.

Who could have been responsible for injuries of this type?

If you believe you have sustained injuries through poor hygienic conditions during a hospital stay then you could be entitled to make a compensation claim. If you have sustained infections through poor hygiene then you could look to claim against any of the medical professionals that operate within the hospital, as they have failed to provide acceptable hygiene levels. If you believe these requirements have not been reached then it is in your rights to claim against them for negligence.

What type of infections could I receive as a result of poor hygiene?

Poor hygienic conditions could have a serious impact on your health during your hospital stay and as a result you could contract an infection, with some popular examples of this including:

·         MRSA

·         C Difficile (clostridium difficile)

·         Bacterial infections such as E coli and klebsiella

·         Glycopeptide resistant enterococci (bacteria which causes urinary tract infections and blood poisoning)

·         Any general infections you receive during your hospital stay
