What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs anytime that a patient receiving treatment is harmed by a doctor or a nurse who does not provide the proper medical care. When a patient receives care, a doctor owes a level of legal responsibility to the patient to provide that care; when this agreement is breached and an injury results, the patient is entitled to compensation for the incident. Important to proving a medical malpractice case is showing that another competent doctor, in a similar situation, would not have performed in the way your particular doctor did.
There are many ways that doctors are nurses do not uphold the standard of level of medical care that they should. From diagnosing the wrong disease to making a surgical mistake, to misreading a chart, any error made can be life-changing or even fatal.
Some of the most common medical malpractice mistakes include:
- Emergency room errors
- Postoperative care mistakes
- Surgical errors
- Failure to diagnose
- Birth injuries
- Surgical errors
- Prescription mistakes
When any mistake is made, the results can be devastating.
