Did you develop a bacterial infection at Roper Hospital? Contact us today: 877-830-6333

McGowan, Hood & Felder, LLC is currently representing patients who developed non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) infections at Roper Hospital in Charleston, South Carolina from 2014 to present.  Our firm believes these infections have been occurring at Roper Hospital since 2011. Our firm has filed different cases on behalf of patients for infections sustained while under the care of Roper Hospital or one of its physicians. If you or a loved-one sustained injuries because of a NTM infection or any other type of bacterial infection during care or treatment at Roper Hospital, you may be entitled to compensation for multiple types of harms and losses, including lost wages, medical bills, loss of enjoyment of life, mental anguish, and pain and suffering. These types of infections can be caused by exposure to harmful and deadly bacteria during:

Roper Hospital

  • Breast reconstruction procedures (operating room);
  • Hospitalization;
  • Plastic surgery (operating room);
  • Cosmetic procedures (operating room);
  • Open-chest surgery (operating room);
  • General surgery (operating room);
  • Dental procedures;
  • Unsterilized IV placement;
  • Hip, knee, elbow and shoulder implant surgery (operating room);
  • Contaminated catheter insertion.

We believe that most, if not all, of these infections were preventable. Why were there no reported cases from MUSC, East Cooper or Roper-Mt. Pleasant? After consultation with experts and review of thousands of pages of documents obtained from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we believe that these infections occurred due to basic breakdowns in sterile procedure and protocol. If you were injured or became  infected with a NTM or other bacterial agent while under the care of Roper Hospital or one of its physicians, we want to hear from you.

These infections at Roper caused harms and losses that were likely preventable if proper sterile practices had been followed at the hospital or in its operating rooms.
