Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, healthcare providers may be responsible for a failure to prescribe antibiotics if the standard of care required that they be administered, and if the failure to do so resulted in a permanent injury from an infection. If you have suffered a permanent injury due to medical negligence of this type, please feel free to call me or one of my partners at my firm. We have handled numerous claims of the nature referenced.
