What Misconducts Are Considered Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice covers the injuries caused by the negligence of medical professionals. The most typical types of medical malpractice are as follow:
Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis
A misdiagnosis describes a situation when your doctor tells you that you have some illness or condition, but it's incorrect. When an illness is misdiagnosed, or symptoms of an illness are overlooked leading to a delay in diagnosis. This can cause delayed treatment that leads to negative patient outcomes.
When the incorrect medication or a wrong dose of the correct medication is prescribed, causing organ damages, pain and suffering, or a range of other damaging outcomes.
Understandably, surgeries all have an element of risk, but serious errors caused by negligence or bad judgement shouldn’t be among them. Operation on the wrong body part, badly performed operations and surgical items left inside the body are typical examples of this.
