What Can Happen When a Patient is Released Too Early?

When a patient becomes very ill or injured, they may be required to spend multiple nights in a hospital so they can receive medical attention around the clock. However, many hospitals face overcrowding on a daily basis, causing staff to discharge patients as quickly as possible. Although many patients are excited to go home after spending multiple nights in the hospital, patients who are prematurely discharged can experience severe health problems.

If a person is discharged too early and is harmed as a result, they may be able to argue that the medical staff or facility:

  • Failed to diagnose or treat the condition while the patient was in the hospital
  • Failed to confirm medical stability before releasing the patient
  • Failed to schedule crucial follow-up appointments
  • Failed to conduct proper tests before discharging the patient

If a person sustains injuries or the illness worsens because he or she was prematurely released from the hospital, the patient or the affected loved ones may be able to collect financial compensation for the following:

  • Lost wages
  • Additional medical expenses
  • Emotional Distresses
  • Physical therapy
  • Inability to carry out day-to-day activities
