Medical professionals have a responsibility to provide quality care to their patients. Any time a health care professional fails to provide a reasonable standard of care they face the at risk of being negligent. Medical malpractice is a common preventable error that is caused by health care professionals. Health care providers are responsible for any adverse effect of care caused by any type of negligent act.
A majority of patients may feel they are a victim of misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose. Early detection is an important factor of increasing survival rates when detected in the earliest stages. Some of the most common mistakes made due to misdiagnosis and treatments are failure to treat infection, failure to diagnose cancer, preventable heart attacks and strokes, and failure to treat medical conditions in a timely manner. In these cases, correctly identifying these conditions would prevent or avoid a case of negligence and increase the chances of survival.
Another common type of medical malpractice case is surgical errors. The main concern for surgical errors is the patient safety while in surgery. There are common surgical error cases that occur in the surgical environment. Some of those cases involve cutting the wrong body part during surgery, leaving a instrument inside the patient, or performing the wrong procedure on the wrong patient. Although, medical errors can occur in any area of medicine, it’s important to ensure the right surgical procedure is done on the right patient, and on the right body part especially while in the operating room.
