Medical Negligence At Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center
Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) is a highly ranked pediatric hospital and one of only four in Ohio with a level 1 pediatric trauma center. It’s also a research facility tied to the University of Cincinnati Academic Health Center. According to U.S. News and World Report, CCHMC ranks fourth nationally on the Best Children’s Honor Roll and 10th in pediatric specialities.
Despite these high rankings, however, malpractice still occurs. The hospital treats a high volume of patients, with more than a million patient encounters each year, and employs upwards of 15,000 people. With those high volumes, negligence is bound to happen. And for children who are the unfortunate victims of medical negligence, the consequences can be lifelong or even fatal.
