Hospital Malnutrition Compensation Claims Information

It is a sad fact that, due to clinical negligence, patients in UK hospitals are often left malnourished or dehydrated. Due to funding cuts, lack of care and attention or other factors, patients can easily be forgotten or ignored, particularly during busy periods. Anyone staying in hospital is extremely vulnerable, whether they’re receiving treatment or recovering from surgery. As such, any kind of malnutrition or dehydration can be extremely harmful. If you’re looking to make a hospital malnutrition compensation claim against any NHS or private hospital in the UK, we are here for you.

If you’ve suffered any kind of hospital dehydration or malnourishment during your stay, you may be able to claim compensation. In most cases, you’ll need to prove that you have been actually malnourished or dehydrated, and that these conditions have had a negative impact on your health or recovery.

Is Hospital Malnutrition / Dehydration a Form of Medical Negligence?

Hospital malnutrition and dehydration are a form of medical negligence. While in a hospital environment, doctors, nurses and specialists are taking responsibility for your wellbeing. If they’ve failed to provide you with food and water, or actively prevented you from being fed or watered to the point that you become malnourished or dehydrated, they are impacting your health and recovery. As such, you may be able to claim compensation for their medical negligence.

Can Hospital Malnutrition Make Other Conditions Worse?

Malnutrition and dehydration in a hospital can have a negative impact on your recovery and, sometimes, can lead to other conditions developing or worsening. For example, if you’re recovering from surgery or an accident involving blood loss, staying well fed and watered is extremely important. Similarly, if you suffer from a condition like diabetes, malnourishment and dehydration can have a serious impact on your health and overall condition. If hospital malnutrition or dehydration has caused your other conditions to worsen, get in touch with Tylers’ medical negligence experts today!

Who is to Blame for Hospital Malnutrition or Dehydration?

If you suffer any kind of malnutrition or dehydration in hospital, we are here for you. In most cases, your condition will be caused by nurses or catering staff neglecting to provide you with food or water. In some cases, it can be due to mistakes or medical negligence. In some instances, it is even possible that you could be prevented from eating due to doctors and healthcare specialists making mistakes on your file and marking you as ‘nil by mouth’. If you aren’t sure whether you’re able to make a malnutrition or dehydration claim, get in touch with Tylers Solicitors today.
