WellStar Health System Malpractice Claims
Atlanta Medical Malpractice Attorneys Fighting for the Wrongfully Injured
WellStar Health System is the largest healthcare system in all of Georgia. It is comprised of nearly a dozen hospitals, eight urgent care facilities, 15+ diagnostic clinics, a pediatric center, and many more healthcare-related facilities. 1,000+ advanced practice professionals belong to the WellStar Health System and more than 20,000 people are employed by the group, including around 2,500 medical staff employees. With such a prominent presence in Georgia, the WellStar Health System is responsible for the medical care of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of Georgians every year.
While WellStar Health System is known by many for providing adequate healthcare services, there is no healthcare system or facility with a spotless record. If or when medical malpractice occurs due to the mistake of a physician of WellStar, then the injured patient has the right to pursue compensation for any and all damages. The Tolson Firm, LLC and our Atlanta medical malpractice attorneys are here to help claimants understand their rights and create an effective case.
Incidents of Medical Malpractice
By legal definitions, medical malpractice occurs whenever a doctor, nurse, physician, or any medical practitioner exercises a care less than the acceptable standard, or conducts a treatment unapproved by either accepted medical practices or the patient. Medical malpractice must also cause real harm to the patient that causes real damages, such as further medical costs or a loss of wages. Under these definitions, medical malpractice can occur in practically any situation that plays out in a medical environment.
Some of the more common reasons why people file a medical malpractice claim include:
- Errors during surgery, planned or emergency
- Delayed diagnosis
- Unclean or inappropriately-used medical instruments
- Illnesses induced due to poor hygiene in hospitals
- Foreign objects left inside a patient after surgery
- Birth injuries to mother or newborn
- Anesthesia errors
- Prescription or medicinal errors
- Mixed up patient files
Any incident of medical malpractice is unacceptable. Doctors and medical staff members must accept that patients always require the best care and that all avoidable mistakes must be prevented entirely. Medical malpractice claims are often the best way to prevent similar errors and negligence from occurring in the future, as they send a clear message to medical groups, like WellStar Health System, that medical malpractice will not be tolerated.
