Medical malpractice: 4 hospitals fined for substandard care

Medical patients depend on hospitals and staff for proper care when they are in vulnerable and precarious states of health. If hospitals fall short, mistakes lead to more serious or even fatal injuries and, typically, medical malpractice lawsuits.

When those same injured people are neglected or improperly cared for, the consequences can be life-changing. Recent events in California demonstrate the upsetting consequences of neglectful medical care.
