Each year in the United States mistakes occur in medical facilities that leave patients injured and wondering what happened. We rely on doctors and healthcare professionals to take proper care of us as patients, but many times severe and even fatal errors occur.
Medical malpractice is defined as any act or omission by a physician during treatment of a patient that deviates from the accepted norms of practice and results in patient injury.
Examples of medical malpractice include:
- Birth injury
- Medication errors
- Wrongful death
- Patient neglect/abuse
For several years medical errors in the United States have been rising due to overworked healthcare professionals and other contributing factors. In order to combat the increase in medical malpractice, hospitals have put proper policies and procedures in place for employees to follow.
