Army Hospitals

Lawyers for Medical Malpractice at Army Medical Facilities (Worldwide)

Can I sue the Army for medical malpractice?

YES – if the person who was physically injured by the Army doctor, midwife or nurse was a military dependent, or retired military at the time of the Army malpractice.  

Does medical malpractice happen at Army hospitals?

YES- a recent comprehensive study published in the New York Times of the 54 military hospitals in the United States and overseas that provide inpatient services, showed that many compare poorly to leading civilian hospitals on measures of safety in maternity care. Those Army hospitals  with high rates of birth injuries included: 

Madigan Army Medical Center, Tacoma, Washington; Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Bethesda, Maryland; Tripler Army Medical Center Honolulu, Hawaii; Womack Army Medical Center; Ft. Bragg, North Carolina; Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center Ft. Hood, Texas; Martin Army Community Hospital Fort Benning, Georgia; Fort Belvoir Community Hospital Ft. Belvoir, Virginia; Landstuhl Regional Medical Center Landstuhl, Germany; Blanchfield Army Community Hospital, Fort Campbell, Kentucky; Irwin Army Community Hospital Fort, Riley, Kansas; Bayne-Jones Army Community Hospital Fort Polk, Louisiana; and Bassett Army Community Hospital Fort Wainwright, Alaska.

Another study showed that the Army’s largest hospitals performed worse that established benchmarks for things such as infections and improperly done procedures.  Army hospitals found to have high rates of surgical complications included:

Madigan Army Medical Center, Tacoma, Washington; Womack Army Medical Center Ft. Bragg, North Carolina; Fort Belvoir Community Hospital Ft. Belvoir, Virginia; and Evans Army Community Hospital, Ft. Carson, Colorado.

How do I sue the Army for medical malpractice?

The rules are different when suing the Army for malpractice than if you were suing a civilian doctor.  For example, you must first file an administrative claim (an SF95), the time limits are different, especially for children and where you must file the case is different.  Therefore it is important to consult a lawyer who has experience suing the Army for malpractice to make sure your rights are protected.
