What Is Medical Malpractice?
There are some misunderstandings when it comes to medical malpractice. Medical malpractice is when a medical error occurs and causes an injury. This could be a misdiagnosis, delay of diagnosis, a surgical error, a medication error or other types of negligence that causes a patient harm. However, medical malpractice is not a poor outcome from a medical procedure. There are risks and side effects for many medical treatments. It is only when these risks or side effects are not explained to the patient or the patient does not consent that a poor outcome could be considered medical malpractice.
