Contaminated Medical Instruments

The Dangers of Contaminated Instruments

Medical professionals should be well aware of the dangers involved in operating with contaminated instruments. To combat these dangers, doctors, surgeons, nurses, and other care providers are required to follow extensive procedures to minimize the possibility of infection due to contaminated instruments.

If you have suffered complications arising out of contaminated medical equipment or instruments, seeking compensation for your injuries or the hardship you have endured is an absolute necessity. A Los Angeles medical malpractice lawyer from our firm can aggressively fight on your behalf for the compensation you deserve.

Not many people realize that hospitals contain many germs and bacteria that can lead to serious, life-threatening infections. Infections in hospitals lead to more deaths than breast cancer and AIDS combined. Contaminated instruments are also very dangerous for individuals undergoing a blood transfusion.

Blood transfusion injuries are usually assessed as infectious or noninfectious risks. These risks usually result from medical negligence on the part of doctors or other medical staff who do not clean their instruments properly or fail to discard contaminated implements. Infectious risks include the possibility of contracting hepatitis, HIV, or a drug-resistant bacterial infection.
