Who Can Be Held Accountable For The Medical Malpractice?

Generally, a medical malpractice claim can be brought against providers of medical or health care. This can include physicians, nurses, hospitals, and pharmacists, among others. These claims may be brought against individuals, corporations, associations, etc. The courts of Wisconsin have held that the hospital is responsible for the acts of physicians who provide medical care in its facility. Therefore, a hospital may be liable for the negligence of an independent physician.
