What constitutes medical negligence?
Many people are at risk for becoming injured because of the negligence
of a doctor or another medical professional. Like in any profession, doctors
and nurses can make mistakes. Unlike many professions, their mistakes
have a direct effect on the health and wellbeing of patients. This is
why medical staff negligence is so unacceptable. Because the medical field
is so technical and specialized, these people have to take special precaution
to ensure they do not cause harm to their patients. Some of the most common
forms of medical malpractice are as follows:
Surgical Error- It is not unheard of for a surgeon to remove the wrong organ, leave medical
instruments inside of a patient or accidentally snip an artery. If your
loved one was killed or seriously injured because of a negligent surgery
then this constitutes medical malpractice.
Misdiagnosis- While doctors may not be able to detect everyone's illnesses right
away, there is a certain level of care that they must provide so that
an accurate diagnosis can be made. If a doctor diagnose a patient with
the wrong illness and they were administered the wrong treatment, they
could have been seriously hurt.
Failure to Diagnose- Failure to diagnose is especially dangerous when it comes to time-sensitive
illnesses such as cancer. If your doctor failed to diagnose your illness
and it worsened, then you may have a medical malpractice case.
