Post When Hospital Infection is a Legal Issue
When Hospital Infection is a Legal Issue
by: Laura Williams

Hospital infections are a major legal concern for hospitals and can cause a hospital a fortune in legal fees. Some hospital infections cannot be cured with regular antibodies. Because some hospital infections are incurable, many hospitals have adopted stringent hospital infection control measures to improve safety. Due to legal costs from lawsuits involving hospital infections, facilities must focus on hospital infection control protocol.

Hospital infection control protocols for hospitals involve the adoption of procedures designed to improve the safety of medical facilities. Many hospitals have instituted improved quality control measures aimed at improving the hygienic practices of clinicians, and the standardization of processes.

Something as simple as a disinfection cap can improve the overall quality of care. A disinfection cap is important to the sterilization of medical equipment. A disinfection cap protects the patient from infections from airborne illnesses. The disinfection cap securely attaches to a valve and protects the patient from airborne contaminants. When a disinfection cap is used properly in procedures, the overall hospital infection control policy of the facility is enhanced and hospital infections are prevented. If the disinfection cap is changed routinely in accordance with recommended hospital infection control policies, the hospital becomes standardized in their processes.

Simple adjustments in hospital infection control protocol, like focusing on the proper use of the disinfection cap for clinicians, improves the overall quality of care for a facility. Such adopted medical procedures protect the patient from preventable hospital infections and the hospital from potential legal issues. For more information visit to our site at
