What Is Medical Malpractice?

When providing diagnosis and treatment, doctors, surgeons, and other medical professionals must uphold what is known as a “standard of care.” The standard of care refers to the level at which, given the circumstances, a case would be managed by a competent practitioner.

The standard of care is intended to protect patients. When lapses occur, patients may suffer a number of adverse effects, including:

  • Delay in life-saving treatment
  • Delay in timely testing and diagnosis
  • Developing a serious illness or complication while receiving treatment
  • Postoperative infection and other complications
  • Being prescribed the wrong medication
  • Not receiving a referral to the appropriate specialist
  • Receiving unnecessary or dangerous treatment

Types of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is more than a simple mistake, and negligence and errors can take many different forms.

Common types of medical malpractice claims include:

  • Failure to diagnose a heart attack or other life-threatening event
  • Failure to diagnose cancer or another serious illness
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Birth injuries, including OB/GYN malpractice during pregnancy, delivery, and after the baby is born
  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Emergency room errors
  • Drug prescription and pharmaceutical errors
  • Failure to obtain informed consent
  • Hospital errors

Many instances of medical malpractice occur due to the negligence of staff at the facility, including doctors, nurses, surgeons, administrators, and others. However, in some cases the fault may rest wholly or in part with the manufacturer of a defective or dangerous drug or medical device.
