What is Medical Malpractice or Medical Negligence?
Medical malpractice occurs when medical professionals deviate from the recognized “standard of care” in the treatment of a patient. Many medical malpractice cases turn on this question: What was the medical "standard of care" in the situation in question?
The “standard of care” is based on the customary practices of the average physician given the scope of their practice, i.e., what the average physician would customarily or typically do in similar circumstances.
A medical negligence claim exists when a medical professional’s negligence causes injury, wrongful death, or damages to a patient.
The standard of care for physicians is that they must exercise such reasonable care and skill for their patients as under similar conditions is ordinarily employed by the medical profession.
Hospitals also owe their patients the duty of using reasonable care to furnish equipment and facilities suited to the purposes intended for optimum results.
Medical Malpractice is a departure from good and accepted medical care causing injury. As with anyone, medical professionals are held accountable for their actions.
