Compensation claims for a lack of hygiene during rehabilitation

When it comes to treating injuries or illnesses, the treatment is only the initial stage, in many cases the recuperation and rehabilitation can be equally as important when it comes to the recovery stages. This process helps to ensure you get back to full fitness, as it provides you the necessary guidance to help you off the operating table and back into your normal routine. Unfortunately though, poor hygienic conditions can arise through negligence which can cause result in infection and hinder your rehabilitation.

It can be a very hands-on process, for example if you were undergoing a massage then it is important the bed is clean and as well as the masseur, otherwise you could contract an infection and if you do find yourself in this situation then you could consider a claim for compensation.

Who could I consider making a claim against?

If you believe that you have suffered as a result of poor hygiene during your rehabilitation process and your conditions have declined, then you could look to make a compensation claim against any medical professional who you feel has neglected you. This would most likely be a physiotherapist or nurse whose actions have resulted in you poor health and possible infection. Unhygienic conditions are unacceptable and very serious, so if you believe the appropriate requirements have not been reached then it is in your rights to claim for negligence.

How could poor hygiene levels affect me during rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation is an important stage in your recovery process, so if you have been affected by poor hygiene then you could be entitled to make a claim. There are a number of areas in which potential problems could have occurred, which include:

·         Claims against a negligent physiotherapist
