Medical Mistake or Medical Malpractice.

 

Doctors spend a great deal of time in school learning their profession.  However, despite having extensive training, mistakes can be made.  When mistakes are made by medical professionals, these mistakes are considered medical malpractice.  Mistakes by doctors can occur when they are tired or distracted.  Many doctors work too many hours and see too many patients.  Overworked is also a complaint staff of most hospitals can make as well.  Whatever the reason for a mistake, is it fair that an unsuspecting patient should have to bear the cost of the mistake.  The law does not think so.

Medical Mistakes can take on a variety of forms.

 

For example:

Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis;

Negligent surgery either in the performance of or need for surgery;

Birth injuries;

Incorrect dosage of prescription drugs;

Failure to warn of harmful side effects or risks from prescribed medications or medical device implants;

Emergency Room errors including failure to treat;

Hospital mistakes including administering or failing to administer correct medications.

 

Medical mistakes can lead to all sorts of complications including death of the patient.
