What Is Medical Malpractice?

The term “medical malpractice” refers to situations in which a patient has suffered injury as a result of a doctor, hospital or other healthcare professional’s negligence. There are many situations that can lead to a medical malpractice injury, but regardless of what led to the patient’s injury, the medical professional or hospital should be held responsible for their negligence.

Medical malpractice can occur under many circumstances, including:

  • Errors in diagnosis, including misdiagnosis and the failure to diagnose a condition
  • Medication and dosage errors
  • Ignoring or misreading laboratory results
  • Failure to order and perform appropriate testing
  • Surgical errors, including wrong-site surgery mistakes
  • Prescribing and performing unnecessary surgeries
  • Anesthesiology errors
  • Injuries during birth
  • Discharging from the hospital prematurely
  • Errors in follow-up and aftercare

When determining if medical malpractice has occurred, it must be determined that a violation of standard care, or the medical standards identified within the medical profession as being acceptable, has occurred. Additionally, it must be proven that the victim’s injury was a result of the negligence of the hospital, a doctor, or another healthcare professional. Finally, the victim must demonstrate that significant damages have resulted from the healthcare professional’s negligence. These damages may include permanent disability, a loss of income and/or the ability to work, the accrual of substantial medical bills, pain and suffering, and more.
