If a hospital employee, such as a nurse, technician or paramedic is responsible for the injury that your child sustained and the injury was caused by negligence, you will most likely file suit against the hospital. However, in some instances if the employee was acting under direct orders from a doctor, it is the doctor who is liable.

In most cases, doctors are not actual employees of the hospital. They are independent contractors with liability of their own. If investigation of your claim leads to evidence of negligence on behalf of your doctor, then you would usually file claim against him.

However, there are some instances where the hospital would still be liable for the doctor’s negligence even if the doctor were an independent contractor. The hospital must have made it clear to the patient that the doctor was not an employee of the hospital. This is usually accomplished via admission forms, but if you were an emergency room patient, you may have never seen such forms. And in some states, emergency room liability always falls on the hospital despite what the patient was told.

Finally, a court may find a hospital at fault for a doctor’s negligence if the hospital was aware of any issues the doctor had that may affect his performance and still allowed him to practice there. For instance, if the doctor had a known substance abuse problem or if he had prior reports of similar negligence cases and the hospital still allowed him to work there, the hospital may be found liable.
