Proving your claim against the hospital depends on being able to clearly demonstrate that your injury or worsening of condition is directly attributable to the hospital staff's failure to fulfill a reasonable standard of care. If you were accepted as a patient and were consequently owed a duty of care, and if the hospital staff acted in breach of this duty either through acts of commission or omission, you have a right to claim damages for any resulting injury.
