What is Administrative Negligence?

Administrative negligence in the healthcare system specifically refers to the failure on the part of hospital administrators to provide the quality of care that their patients can expect from them. Oftentimes these errors (whether they be medication errors, medical record errors, or something else) can lead to serious injury or even wrongful death.

Negligence by Hospital Administrators

Hospitals are run by administrators, boards, committees, and other personnel. The hospital is responsible for having the appropriate administrative policies in place.

Administrative negligence in hospitals can include:

  • Failure to have the proper administrative policies or protocols for the administration of medicine, treatment of patients, cleaning of the facility, etc.
  • Failure to fire or discipline employees who have proven to be negligent or guilty of misconduct in the past
  • Negligent treatment of patient paperwork or medical records, including errors while filling out patient medical forms
  • Negligent credentialing of physicians with privileges or negligent hiring of medical staff
  • Failure to maintain the premises in a safe manner

Medication Errors in Healthcare

Medication errors can include several types of malpractice or negligence including:

  • Overdosing a patient
  • Failing to give a patient their medication on time
  • Giving a patient the wrong medication
  • Failing to properly record patient medication allergies
