When you are admitted to a hospital, you trust that the treatment you receive will make you better – not worse. Unfortunately, too many patients receive substandard care, leading to very serious problems or even wrongful death. Sometimes this is because hospitals are understaffed and caregivers are overworked, and sometimes it is because an individual doctor or nurse makes a mistake. In either case, you have rights and options.
