Hospital administrators are responsible for many problems involving hospital policy and personnel that can result in injuries to patients. If an administrator’s mistakes end in harm to a patient, the victim may be able to sue for financial compensation from the hospital. This compensation can be vital for many injured patients, as it may provide for their treatment and recovery costs in addition to other damages.
If your injuries were caused by a hospital’s administrative policies or decisions, you may be entitled to pursue financial compensation as a result.

Policies and Decisions Leading to Patient Injuries
As the individuals responsible for establishing hospital-wide policy and overseeing the employment of personnel, administrators can have a significant background role in a patient’s treatment. However, if these decisions compromise a patient’s health, the hospital may be subjected to litigation by the patient or their family. The following are representative of administrative errors which could prove to be problematic:
Requiring excessive shifts of doctors and nurses
Failure to enforce proper sanitization and sterilization policies and procedures
Hiring unlicensed medical professionals or those whose past makes them unfit
Failing to properly train employees in hospital-specific policies
