What Medical Malpractice Means
All medical professionals are morally and legally required to abide by the duty of care when tending to their patients. This standard, which is established by the medical community, ensures that all patients receive the same care regardless of their location. Medical malpractice occurs when doctors do not meet the standard, and their actions cause preventable injury or death to their patient.
Here’s an example of medical malpractice:
A woman goes in for a heart surgery. The surgeon reads the patient’s chart wrong, and gives her a transfusion of the wrong blood type. The error makes her ill and extends her hospital stay.
