Holding Iowa Hospitals Accountable

Hospitals in Iowa are known for upholding a high standard of care. Unfortunately, even the best hospitals can make errors that result in serious injury or wrongful death for patients. When a hospital error results in a negative outcome, it is important to understand why the error happened so that it can be prevented in the future. It is also important to compensate the individual or family for the physical injuries or damages caused by the medical error.

The medical malpractice lawyers of Hixson & Brown, P.C., in West Des Moines, Iowa, represent people who have been injured due to hospital negligence. We handle all types of hospital negligence claims, including:

  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Failure to monitor patients for infections following surgery
  • Birth injuries
  • Emergency room errors such as failure to detect heart attack or broken bones
  • Failure to diagnose cancer or other diseases
  • Laboratory errors
  • X-ray and radiology errors
  • Medication errors
  • Slip-and-fall accidents occurring in a hospital setting

Not every negative outcome in a hospital setting is due to malpractice. Sometimes, doctors, nurses and other hospital staff can do everything right, and the patient still suffers a serious injury or dies. However, if the hospital failed to uphold the standard of care for a patient, then you may have a case of medical malpractice against the hospital.

In determining whether a hospital may have committed malpractice in your case, our attorneys will work with highly respected physicians, surgeons and other medical experts. We handle malpractice cases throughout Iowa, including Blank Children’s Hospital, Broadlawns Medical Center, Iowa Health, Iowa Lutheran Hospital, Iowa Methodist Medical Center, Mercy Health Services, Mercy Medical Center and VA Central Iowa Health Care System — Des Moines Division, Ottumwa Regional Health Center, Van Diest Medical Center, Great River Medical Center, Hancock County Memorial Hospital, Henry County Health Center, Hamilton County Public Hospital and Covenant Medical Center.
