Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

The statute of limitations for medical malpractice is 2 years after the mistake is discovered, but never more than 4 years after it happened. If a hospital employee accidentally gave someone an MRSA infection, that's going to fall under malpractice laws.
