Filtration of the hospital's HVAC system, observance of health and safety regulations, disposal of contaminated instruments and bedding, and cleanliness of building surfaces are all a part of standard medical practice that could be closely adhered to. If your hospital infection has been acquired due to unsanitary conditions, poor protocols,
contaminated instruments, or
medical negligence, that hospital or medical facility could be held liable for your injuries.
