Early Hospital Discharge
An early hospital discharge means you can go home and spend time recovering in familiar surroundings. However, it also presents certain risks. Studies have shown that an early hospital discharge can sometimes lead to infections or other serious medical complications following surgery.
If your health has been compromised after being sent home early by a hospital with a cost-cutting agenda, you may be able to pursue compensation for the injuries you have endured.
In cases where an early release from the hospital has caused serious injury, the discharged patient may have a medical malpractice claim against the hospital. If you or a loved one has suffered an infection or other injury as a result of an early hospital discharge, please contact our San Jose, California law firm to speak with one of our experienced attorneys.

Our firm provides zealous advocacy designed to secure maximum compensation for your losses. We are committed to providing you with a much needed sense of justice.
Some of the risks presented by early hospital discharge include:
- Infections due to lack of proper post-surgical care
- Insufficient monitoring of newborns, which can lead to undiagnosed developmental issues, particularly in prematurely born children
- Undiagnosed and untreated post partum depression due to lack of monitoring by qualified medical professionals
- Serious health complications caused by incomplete or hastily issued instructions
Post-surgical discharge is not the only time when early hospital discharge can place a patient at risk. There is also controversy regarding the amount of time a mother and baby need to spend in the hospital following childbirth. Premature discharge of a mother and her newborn can sometimes result in serious health complications.
