Dialysis Clinic Injuries
Dialysis clinic injuries are prevalent, whether they come in the form of a slip and fall, a bleeding event, a medication error, or another mis-event. Romaguera Law Group has even seen non-physical damages, such as the theft of a hemodialysis patient’s personal property.
Unfortunately, these vulnerable adults may report to these dialysis clinics 3 times a week for up to 5 hours a day, simply to stay alive. These clinics usually operate 15-hour days, and the clinics are operated by a staff which mainly consists of “dialysis technicians.” These technicians are usually “certified” nurse aids, or CNAs. While CNAs are generally supervised by nurses, they usually represent the first line of care and, if necessary, life-saving care.
Many of these clinics do not have trained individuals or even equipment to be able to adequately respond to an emergency, leaving disastrous situations to paramedics. By the time paramedics arrive, the damage is usually already done.
Romaguera Law Group has extensive experience with dialysis claims whether they might involve a slip/trip and fall or a medical mistake in one of the hundreds of these clinics across the State of Florida. If you or a loved one have had a bad experience at one of these clinics and suffered injuries, death, or other damages, we can evaluate your claim and provide you with honest and realistic advice.
