Public Infection Reports are Not Required by Georgia Hospitals

Georgia does not have a legal requirement for hospitals to create public accounts of known infections that patients can contract while receiving medical attention.  A public account of infections is not uncommon, as 28 other states have this legal requirement.

Some Georgia hospitals like Piedmont Hospital are more forthcoming about potential infections than others, even though it is technically not a requirement.

The caring and experienced lawyers at Pope & Howard P.C. are dedicated to representing the interests of clients who have suffered from infections caused by medical negligence. The expert legal team provides a thorough investigation, examining medical records of patient’s conditions and procedures, to file suit and claim fair and full compensation.

Infections from surgery or wrongly prescribed medicine can occur immediately or after time has passed. The skilled attorneys at Pope & Howard P.C. provide a comprehensive investigation to ensure that all evidence and pertinent information is gathered.

Common infections and conditions contracted while receiving medical care include:

  • Staphylococcus (Staph) infections
  • Nerve damage
  • Anemia or other blood conditions

If you or someone you know has suffered from an infection while receiving medical care, please contact Pope & Howard, P.C. at 404-885-9999. You can also visit our website,, for more information.  The initial consultation is free.
