MRSA hospital scarring victim question

I went into hospital for a sterilisation operation a few months ago and I developed MRSA a day after the operation. This has led to extensive unsightly scarring of my groin, abdomen and stomach region.

I lodges a patient complaint with the hospital and they have admitted that their cleanliness procedures were lacking.

Can I claim compensation from the hospital for the scarring caused by the MRSA?

As you contracted MRSA on the hospital premises and the hospital have admitted problems with their cleanliness procedures – it is possible you have a claim for hospital clinical negligence can be made. This claim would typically be made against the Hospital NHS Trust.

Before a solicitor commences a claim a you should make a written complaint via the patient complaints procedure for the particular NHS Trust. To find this procedure – you should contact the hospital who will provide a contact name and address to write to.

The amount of compensation your MRSA compensation claim might be worth will be determined largely from an expert medical report from a plastic surgeon describing the extent of the scarring you have suffered.
