What Qualifies as Medical Malpractice
Examples of types of medical malpractice cases:
Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis
If a healthcare provider fails to accurately diagnose a medical condition in a timely manner, it can lead to delayed treatment, allowing the condition to progress and cause harm.
Surgical mistakes can include operating on the wrong body part, leaving surgical instruments inside the patient, or making errors during the procedure that result in unnecessary harm.
Administering the wrong medication, incorrect dosage, or failing to consider a patient’s allergies or potential drug interactions can lead to serious health complications.
Injuries sustained during childbirth due to medical negligence, such as improper use of forceps, failure to respond to fetal distress, or inadequate prenatal care.
Mistakes in administering anesthesia, such as giving too much or too little, can result in complications ranging from respiratory problems to brain damage.
Failure to Obtain Informed Consent
If a healthcare provider fails to adequately inform a patient about the potential risks and benefits of a medical procedure or treatment, and the patient suffers harm as a result, it may constitute malpractice.
Failure to Monitor
Negligence in monitoring a patient’s vital signs, especially during surgery or recovery, can lead to complications and serious injuries.
Lack of Follow-Up or Aftercare
Failing to provide appropriate follow-up care after a medical procedure or treatment can result in complications or exacerbation of the patient’s condition.
Negligence in Emergency Room Care
Mistakes in the emergency room, such as misdiagnosis, delays in treatment, or failure to prioritize patients based on the severity of their condition, can lead to serious consequences.
Inadequate Supervision of Staff
If a healthcare facility fails to properly supervise and train its staff, leading to errors by nurses, technicians, or other healthcare professionals, it may be considered medical malpractice.
