When medical professionals fail to follow medical practice standards which result in injury to a patient, they may be held liable for medical malpractice. Medical malpractice can result when a health care provider is negligent or omits to the treatment of their patient which leads to further medical issues.
Types of Medical Malpractice:
- Misdiagnosis– A misdiagnosis occurs when a doctor fails to make an accurate and timely diagnosis of a harmful medical condition. A misdiagnosis can lead to the prescription of treatments that are not appropriate for the patient, resulting in harm. As a result, this can cause your condition to worsen or cause death. Common misdiagnosis include infections, tumors, heart attacks, and cancer.
- Improper treatment– Improper treatment occurs when a patient received treatment that was not sufficient to treat their medical condition. Also, it may also be malpractice if the appropriate treatment is given to the patient but is administered incompetently.
- Failure to warn a patient of known risks– When a doctor performs a procedure on a patient, the patient must give his or her informed consent. Informed consent means the doctor must have informed the patient of possible risks and critical details about the treatment.
- Surgery Errors– A surgical error is a preventable mistake during surgery. In most surgical error cases, the surgeon’s treatment was below the standard of care. A surgery error can occur when a surgeon lacks the skill necessary to perform the surgery successfully. Common examples of surgical errors are injuring a nerve during surgery, operating on the wrong body part, or administering too much or too little medication.
