The Kettering Health Network

The Kettering Health Network is a large medical network operating within the Greater Dayton area and much of south-western Ohio. The Kettering Health Network consists of eight hospitals, the Kettering College, and around 120 outpatient facilities of various medical specialties. The organization operates as a not-for-profit organization and encompasses almost every facet of medical care.

The Kettering Medical Center is the flagship hospital for the Kettering Health Network and is located in Kettering, Ohio. Kettering Medical Center is a teaching hospital, which means it provides clinical education and training to medical students, as well as future and current health professionals. Kettering Medical Center is also affiliated with Wright State University, Boonshoft School of Medicine, and Kettering College of Medical Arts. The other hospitals within the Kettering Health Network are: Fort Hamilton Hospital, Grandview Medical Center, Greene Memorial Hspital, Kettering Behavioral Hospital, Soin Medical Center, Southview Medical Center and Sycamore Medical Center.

Kettering College is a college owned by the Kettering Medical Center which specializes in art, science, and health professions. Some of the offered areas of education are included below.

The numerous offices and outpatient facilities owed by or affiliated with the Kettering Health Network treat many different patients in a variety of situations and circumstances, and are specialized in various areas of medicine.

A list of the Kettering Health Network locations can be found below. If you have been treated at one of those locations, than it is likely you were treated by some aspect of the Kettering Health Network.

Medical Care and Legal Significance

While the level of medical care within the Kettering Health Network is generally very good, there is always the chance that a physician or other medical provider can make a mistake causing injury to a patient. Injuries or harm suffered by a patient while being treated within the Kettering Health Network may have been caused by medical malpractice or medical negligence. As such, the Kettering Health Network may be implicated when medical malpractice or medical negligence occurs with the Network. There are a number of ways that medical malpractice or medical negligence may occur within the Kettering Health Network, such as:

It is the responsibility of the Kettering Health Network to ensure that the doctors, medical professionals, and other healthcare providers follow the correct procedures and proper practices for patient care. This includes but is not limited to following the rules for patient safety. If a healthcare provider fails to follow the correct procedures and rules for patient safety it needlessly increases the risk of injury to a patient.

When a doctor or other healthcare provider falls below the proper standard of care and a patient is injured a claim may be made for medical malpractice and/or medical negligence. Under the legal doctrine of respondeat superior, an employer or principal can be held legally responsible for the wrongful acts of an employee or agent, if such acts occur within the scope of employment or agency. This means that the Kettering Health Network may be held liable for the wrongful conduct of its employees, to include doctors, nurses and other medical providers who commit medical malpractice.

There are also separate and independent claims that may be brought against an organization like the Kettering Health Network. This can include but is not limited to causes of action for negligent credentialing, failure to supervise, failure to train and failure to provide adequate medical facilities amongst others. For example, a negligent credentialing claim is based upon a hospital’s duty to investigate, select and retain only qualified and competent physicians as members of its medical staff. Under this theory of liability, in which a patient is injured by an incompetent or unqualified physician, the hospital is directly responsible to the patient, not for the malpractice of the physician, but for the hospitals own failure to properly conduct the credentialing process and hiring the physician in the first place.

If you suspect that the doctors, nurses or other staff members of the Kettering Health Network have committed malpractice or other independent wrongful acts, it is best to consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney due to the complex legal issues involved in these types of claims. The statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims is one year from the date of the event. While one year may seem like a lot of time, there is a lot of investigation, research, records review and consultation with experts which should be undertaken by an attorney before a case is ever filed in Court. As such, you should not delay in contacting an attorney about your potential claims.

Seeking Legal Counsel and Guidance

The medical malpractice attorneys at the Brannon Law Firm have been successful in pursuing lawsuits on behalf of victims of medical malpractice or medical negligence against the Kettering Health Network. While the Kettering Health Network treats many patients successfully, avoidable mistakes can, and do, happen. And when medical treatment is involved, mistakes can be severely damaging and even deadly. The medical professionals of the Kettering Health Network are not immune to making mistakes and should be held accountable for their wrongful conduct.

It is always important to remember that medical malpractice and medical negligence is preventable. It is caused by the error, improper action, or lack of action by medical professionals. It is important to hold those medical professionals to the proper standards of medical care and to hold them accountable for the harms and losses they may cause. The Brannon Law Firm can help hold those at fault accountable.

Additionally, your treatment may be difficult, both financially and emotionally. The consequences of medical malpractice can be severe and long lasting, requiring additional medical treatment, loss of quality of life, loss of income and costly medical bills. It is important to ensure you have the assistance and care that you deserve to live the best life possible. The Brannon Law Firm can help with that process.

Medical malpractice cases can be difficult when a major medical network is implicated. The Kettering Health Network is a large system of doctors, medical professionals, and facilities. Lawsuits against such a network can be challenging and complex. For that reason, it is a good idea to consult with attorneys who have experience bringing successful lawsuits against such organizations.
