What Is Considered Medical Malpractice?
What exactly does it mean for a health care professional to practice medicine badly?
Many patients believe that a negative outcome is malpractice, but that’s not always true. Some claims require clear and convincing evidence, which means the medical oversight might not rise to the level of malpractice.
To lawyers who practice this branch of law, the medical malpractice definition is medical care that deviates from the standard of care.
Examples Of What May Be Medical Malpractice Cases
- Missed Diagnosis Treating serious medical conditions, such as cancer, is easier if it’s caught early. Early diagnosis is one of the most effective ways to make otherwise fatal conditions manageable. When a doctor fails to inform you of a condition in time, the condition becomes more dangerous, more difficult, and more expensive to treat. As a result, it’s more likely to be fatal. Failure to inform a patient of a potentially fatal condition can be medical malpractice. Don’t let a doctor get away with not putting your health first. Hold them accountable if they drop the ball.
- Hospital Infections The CDC reported that more than 722,000 patients received an internal infection when they were at the hospital. Of those, 75,000 victims died, which means that one out of every ten people who got a hospital infection died from it. Hospital infections occur when doctors put profits before their patients. They can lead to expensive treatment, amputation, or death.
- Sepsis Infections Sepsis is a particularly dangerous type of infection that can occur in a hospital. Sepsis causes your flesh to die, filling the wound with toxins that can spread throughout your body. If it’s not caught in time, sepsis leads to amputation or death.This infection is preventable. Hospitals have policies they’re supposed to follow to minimize your risk of getting it. When they don’t, it could be a sign of medical malpractice.
- RSD & Chronic Pain Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) is a serious medical condition that causes chronic pain. While it can occur naturally after an injury, the most common cause of RSD is medical error.If your doctors and nurses fail to do their job, a poorly placed needle or another form of malpractice can sentence you to a lifetime of pain. If someone else’s negligence caused your RSD, you deserve compensation.
- Preventable Amputations Every year, more than 185,000 Americans lose one or more limbs to amputation. Losing a limb is something that affects you for the rest of your life, so the fact that as many as 60% of these amputations were preventable is inexcusable. Doctors had the responsibility to monitor and treat the infection before it forced them to amputate your limbs. They failed and now you have to live with the consequences. We’ll help you hold them accountable so you can get your life back on track.
- Birth Injury Giving birth to a child should be a joyful time. You can’t wait to finally meet them and watch them grow up. But sometimes life doesn’t go according to plan. Birth injuries occur when someone on the medical staff doesn’t do their job and puts your son or daughter’s life at risk.At Hoxie Law, we fight to hold hospitals accountable.
