What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional, such as a doctor, nurse, or hospital, fails to provide proper care, resulting in harm to a patient.
There are several common types of medical malpractice that can occur in various healthcare settings, including but not limited to:
- Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis: This occurs when a healthcare provider fails to accurately diagnose a patient's condition or delays the correct diagnosis, leading to delayed or improper treatment.
- Surgical Errors: Surgical malpractice involves mistakes made during surgical procedures, such as operating on the wrong body part, leaving surgical instruments inside the patient, damaging nerves or organs, or performing unnecessary surgery.
- Medication Errors: Medication errors can happen when healthcare professionals prescribe the wrong medication, administer the wrong dosage, fail to consider a patient's allergies or drug interactions, or provide incorrect instructions for medication use.
- Birth Injuries: These types of malpractice cases involve harm to a newborn or mother during pregnancy, labor, or delivery. Examples include failure to monitor the fetal heart rate, improper use of delivery instruments, or delays in performing necessary interventions.
- Anesthesia Errors: Anesthesia malpractice can occur if an anesthesiologist administers an incorrect dosage of anesthesia, fails to monitor the patient's vital signs during the procedure, or neglects to inform the patient of potential risks or complications.
- Failure to Obtain Informed Consent: Medical professionals are required to inform patients about the potential risks, benefits, and alternatives of a proposed treatment or procedure. If a patient is not adequately informed, and experience harm or injury as a result, it may be considered a case of medical malpractice.
- Lack of Follow-up or Aftercare: Negligence can occur when healthcare providers fail to provide appropriate follow-up care after a procedure, surgery, or treatment, leading to complications or worsening of the patient's condition.
