Hospitals are typically recognized as safe places where people can go to get the medical help they need. They are supposed to be places of healing and hope. And, for many Maryland residents, they are. Hospitals are places they can go when they are sick or injured and know that they will get treated.
However, hospitals are not perfect. As organizations, they make mistakes. Doctors within the hospital also make mistakes. Often these mistakes are of a medical nature, but they don't have to be. There are many areas in which a hospital can be negligent. This can lead to a medical malpractice lawsuit.
