Types of Malpractice
Studies have found that misdiagnosing conditions, infections and disease is the most common medical malpractice occurrence. Misdiagnosis can lead to wrong medical care or prescription, which can have negative long-term effects on the patient.
Patients should feel they’re getting the best standard of care possible when seeking medical attention. Though we know surgeons are only human, surgical errors are highly preventable and easily avoidable mistakes made during surgery. The risks of surgical errors can be long-lasting and even fatal.
Administering or prescribing the wrong medicine to a patient can have serious and sometimes dangerous effects. Medical errors are the result of doctor or medical staff negligence and is a failure in the treatment process that may go beyond the wrong prescription.
Negligence affecting pregnancy and childbirth may include excessive vaginal bleeding, premature babies or nerve injury during labor. Mistakes or misjudgments made by doctors, gynecologists and other medical professionals during pregnancy can pose serious risks for the female and unborn child.
