If You Were Injured Under The Care Of The Mercy Health Hospital System
Mercy Health in and around Cincinnati is a Catholic faith-based medical services organization, formerly known as Catholic Health Partners, that includes the following hospitals and services associated with them: Mercy Health – Anderson Hospital on State Road in Cincinnati; Mercy Health – Clermont Hospital in Batavia, Ohio; Mercy Health – Fairfield, in Fairfield, Ohio; Mercy Health – West Hospital, in Cincinnati; and The Jewish Hospital – Mercy Health, in Cincinnati.
In addition to the above, four stand-alone 24-hour emergency facilities are part of the Cincinnati system, including Mercy Health Harrison Medical Center, Mercy Health Mt. Orab Medical Center, Mercy Health Queen City Medical Center and Mercy Health Rookwood Medical Center.
The names “Mercy Health” and “Catholic Health Partners” are well known and trusted by many patients in the Cincinnati area. While most patients can no doubt expect to receive quality care through this health care system, medical errors inevitably occur from time to time. When medical malpractice leads to injuries, illnesses and preventable deaths, patients and their families often need legal help and/or additional medical care. At Crandall & Pera Law, our medical malpractice attorneys have achieved multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements for patients harmed by medical negligence.
Investigations And Litigation Representing Injured Patients And Their Families
A hospital system’s safety record may be a starting point for investigating causes of malpractice. In the fall of 2021, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade issued by The Leapfrog Group, an independent nonprofit organization, assigned “A” and “B” safety grades to several of Mercy Health’s hospitals in the Cincinnati area. However, it is worth noting that in several aspects of health care procedures, individual hospitals received lower than average scores. For example, Leapfrog reported lower than average scores for Mercy Health – Anderson in the following areas:
- MRSA infections
- Surgical site infections after colon surgery
- Blood leakage during surgery
- Safe medication administration
- Specially trained doctors care for ICU patients
Despite its Catholic roots, Mercy Health is a for-profit medical system that may emphasize efficiency. When our clients have suffered because of medical mistakes, we help them and their families pursue relief. We begin with an investigation into possible and known causes. We work hard to discover evidence of liability. Then we bring claims for compensation that our clients need after suffering because of medical malpractice.
