Medical Malpractice Defined

A patient comes to a medical professional to heal or treat an ailment. When the opposite happens, that the patient is injured or the situation worsens because of a mistake on the part of the health care provider, this is called medical malpractice. Malpractice occurs when a doctor or a health care professional deviates from the standards which are accepted in the medical profession. It is mostly the doctor who has the final say in the procedure or treatment that a patient undergoes. Once a medical practitioner veers away from the standard medical practice and it results to serious injuries or complications on the patient's health, this is considered malpractice. In cases where a medical practitioner is accused of malpractice, another health care professional is asked of the procedure that is applicable in the circumstances of the patient. He should have done what is expected of a practitioner who is under the same situation. The worst case scenario is when a patient dies inadvertently due to the mistake on the part of the doctor. First, take a look at the mistakes which classify as medical malpractice:

1. injuries relating to birth

2. incorrect dosage and dispersal of medicine or error with prescription

3. incorrect or delayed diagnosis of an ailment

4. improper treatment

5. surgery mistakes

6. failure to refer to a medical specialist

7. health complications from anesthesiologists

8. improper procedures performed on emergency rooms

9. abuse of patients in nursing homes, children's ward and other medical institutions
