What is medical malpractice?
We realize that doctors and nurses work long hours and that hospitals are often understaffed and overloaded with patients. However those are inadequate excuses for failing to take proper care of patients. Inadequate or substandard medical care results in patient neglect at best and medical malpractice at worst.
Medical malpractice occurs when doctors, nurses, hospitals or other healthcare providers cause injury or death to a patient by failing to meet the accepted standard of care. The standard of care is how similarly qualified practitioners would have managed the patient’s care under the same or similar circumstances.
Inadequate or substandard medical care amounts to medical malpractice. Some examples of medical malpractice are listed below:
Hospitals and other healthcare facilities, such as nursing homes may also be held liable for negligence for hiring inadequately trained doctors, failing to verify licenses, failing properly to supervise employees and using faulty medical equipment.
