The MRSA bug has been with us for quite some time now and is well known as a potentially life-threatening problem. Many hospitals and NHS trusts have put in place vigorous schemes for monitoring and eradicating MRSA, yet the problem still exists, particularly in post-surgical situations.

This is partly due to the fact that the MRSA organism is very common in ordinary life, but is usually completely harmless. It’s potential for serious injury arises when it attacks patients who have extensive wounds, are recovering from major surgery, or who otherwise have greatly lowered resistance.

Medically, it may simply not be possible to eradicate MRSA completely from the hospital environment, even with the most stringent hygiene routines. What is important is that proper risk analysis is in place, and that procedures for reducing the risk of infection are carefully monitored and enforced.

Being unfortunate enough to suffer the ravages of MRSA infection may not of itself lead to a medical negligence claim; but if it can be shown that hygiene and control measures were not up to a reasonable standard, or were not properly followed, then you may be eligible to make an MRSA claim.

Our experienced lawyers will be happy to consider any potential case. We will assess the circumstance is which infection occurred and if we feel that the claim is likely to succeed then we will work on a no win, no fee basis.
