Hospital acquired infections - a new era in germ warfare

In our practice, we get a number of calls from people who have suffered injuries due to infections contracted during their hospital stay. Studies have shown that more than 220,000 Canadians develop infections during a hospital stay each year and, on average, these infections kill 22 patients each day - more than leukemia and breast cancer combined.

How Often do Hospitals Make Mistakes that Harm Patients?

We get a number of calls in our office from patients (or their family members) who have suffered injuries during their hospital admission which have caused them significant disabilities, or in some cases, death. How often does this occur and what causes these injuries? New reporting requirements in Ontario aim to shed light on this serious issue.
