Hospital Acquired Infection Expert Witnesses

As coronavirus has spread through the country, hospitals have been inundated with COVID-19 patients and healthcare professionals have put in tremendous effort to curb infections. But medical treatment throughout a public health crisis is not without allegations of liability and negligence. In the case of the novel coronavirus, hospital acquired infection is a major risk for non coronavirus patients who must visit the hospital during the pandemic. As you prepare litigation related to contagious hospital settings, a hospital acquired infection expert witness will be critical to consult on the technical medical aspects of the viral crisis.

A hospital acquired infection expert witness can discuss:

  • Technical explanation of coronavirus and how it spreads
  • Precautionary measures for non COVID-19 wards of hospitals
  • Non COVID-19 medical treatment or procedures ongoing during the pandemic
  • Implications of over-capacity facilities
  • Challenges related to supply shortages (ventilators, masks, gloves, gowns)
  • State-specific liability immunity for healthcare providers and facilities
  • Pandemic planning and contagion training
