Forms of Medical Malpractice
For every problem, there is a solution, and vice versa. When a doctor, nurse, surgeon, or other medical professional uses a technique or medicine to treat a patient, there is always the unfortunate opportunity that their mistakes could hurt them instead. In this way, patients must place their trust in the hands of their doctors and hope for the best, usually unable to predict or prevent medical malpractice.
Medical malpractice may be seen in many forms, such as:
- Failing to recognize an injury or illness
- Diagnosing one ailment as another
- Providing dangerous or inadequate medicinal dosages
- Operating on the wrong body part
- Mixing up patient records (mistaken identity)
- Making a patient wait too long for emergency care
Why Medical Malpractice May Occur
There is never an excuse for medical malpractice but there are certainly reasons why it occurs. In almost every case of medical malpractice, some form of negligence can be traced back to the cause. This is completely unacceptable. When someone enters the medical field for their career, they accept that they must always perform at their best and never do anything that could hurt a patient, which is part of the Hippocratic Oath. Anything they do that causes harm to someone seeking medical attention should be counted as liability, and they and their institution must be held accountable for the wrong they have done.
Reasons medical malpractice incidents may occur include:
- Lack of communication before or during surgery
- Exhaustion or fatigue
- Unfamiliarity with procedure or treatment
- Carelessness or distraction
