When Fayetteville residents are hospitalized for injuries or illnesses, they trust that they are in good hands. Hospitals are supposed to be safe places for patients, especially since doctors and nurses are treating and monitoring hundreds of vulnerable patients. Failing to adhere to hospital practices and deviating from the standard of care in any way could put vulnerable patients at risk of suffering further health complications, or even fatal injuries.
Patients don't check in to North Carolina hospitals expecting their conditions to get worse after receiving the proper treatment or surgery they may need. Quality health care and patient safety are expected to be top priorities for hospitals and medical professionals.
