Medicare has a list of various things that it declares to be never events. These are events that should never happen in a healthcare setting they include things like falls that are preventable, bed sores, and certain types of healthcare acquired infections. The important thing to remember is not everything that happens in a healthcare environment should be taking place. If you’re injured, you suffer from bed sores, you develop an acquired infection like sepsis, Cedifficolitis, or MERSA it may very well be that you’re suffering from a never event. If so you need to speak with an attorney right away.
