Many infections can be treated with antibiotic medication.  However, severe and life threatening infections often require hospitalization.  Moreover, patients suffering a serious infection may require surgery or additional medical treatment.

NYC Hospitals with High Rate of Infections

Elmhurst Hospital

Metropolitan Hospital

SUNY Downstate Hospital

Bellevue Hospital

Brookdale Hospital

Hospitals have been known to contain a lot of bacteria.  As such, patients may be at risk of contracting a bacterial infection during a hospital stay.

In certain instances, an infection may occur as a result of a failure by the hospital to treat the patient within the medical standard of care.  When this happens, the patient may have a legal claim for financial compensation.
