Hospitals may be held accountable for the negligent actions of their employees and agents.  Hospital employees or agents may include physicians, nurses, technicians, aides and administrative personnel. The most common theory of liability against a hospital is based on the failure of nursing personnel to provide reasonable care to a patient. The patient may have a valid medical malpractice claim if the failure to provide reasonable care causes an injury to the patient.
