Banner Health is one of the largest hospital chains in Arizona. Banner is required by law to provide safe medical treatment to its patients. When Banner’s doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers fail to provide this safe treatment, patients can suffer catastrophic injuries and even death. We are proud of the work we have done over the last 30 years to help ensure and promote patient safety in our community.
As the largest hospital chain in Arizona, Banner Health is unsurprisingly involved in many medical malpractice lawsuits. In the landmark case Tripp v. Banner UMC-Tucson, Snyder & Wenner won a $15 million medical malpractice verdict against Banner. In that case, the conduct of Banner’s resident emergency physician and attending emergency physician resulted in their patient, a woman in her early 40s, suffering a severe brain injury. She will live the rest of her life in a vegetative state. SInce Banner is responsible for its doctors and nurses, Snyder & Wenner was able to successfully litigate the lawsuit against them to help their devastated clients.
Banner hospitals have now transitioned to electronic medical records, or EMR. While they claim this helps to protect and promote patient safety, electronic records can also have devastating effects. For example, one simple incorrect entry in a patient’s chart, and the “alerts” used in the system will not notify the doctors or nurses of potential harm.
Snyder & Wenner Has Successfully Litigated Numerous Cases against Banner Hospitals
Hospital negligence constitutes a serious violation of patient safety standards. When a patient is wrongfully hurt because of a hospital’s negligent conduct, he or she deserves compensation for the injuries sustained. At Snyder & Wenner, we only take cases involving the most serious injuries. We use our extensive background in medical malpractice cases to hold Banner Hospitals accountable for their misconduct. We also have significant experience investigating electronic medical records. That experience can be used to discover information that is embedded deep in the code of your electronic record.
