Hospital infections are extremely dangerous and have the potential to cause life-altering complications, even death. At Anesi, Ozmon, our attorneys know that far too frequently people are infected because hospitals do not take the proper precautions to prevent the spread of germs. We are dedicated to helping victims who have suffered from a hospital-acquired infection and their family members.
Why Do I Need an Attorney?
Medical malpractice cases are challenging cases because the evidence is often complex. Emotions can also make these cases stressful. When you hire an attorney, you want someone who knows how to handle this case and can get it right. That’s why we’re here. Our law firm has been helping injured people throughout Chicago since 1955. We draw upon that experience for every person we help. Our firm helps people who have acquired a variety of infections, including:

- Surgical-site infections
- Group A streptococcus causing necrotizing fasciitis (flesh-eating bacteria)
How Medical Negligence Can Lead To Staph Infections
Staph infection, contracted through an opening in the skin, is one of the most common hospital infections. Certain strains, such as the antibiotic-resistant strain methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), if not promptly diagnosed and treated, can lead to life-threatening infections of the surgical site, lungs, bones, joints, and heart valves.
These infections are usually caused when doctors, nurses, or other hospital medical staff are medically negligent and do not take adequate precautions to prevent the spread of bacteria, including:
- Failing to wash their hands
- Failing to properly clean and disinfect sinks that could carry waterborne microorganisms
- Failing to follow proper cleaning and disinfecting strategies
- Failing to properly dispose of laboratory waste, blood, needles, scalpels, and/or anatomical and pathological waste
- Failing to wear double gloves during surgery
- Using dirty surgical instruments
