Types of Medical Malpractice
Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis
Failing to diagnose or an improper diagnosis make up many malpractice cases. When a doctor fails to do what other doctors would do in a similar treatment situation, resulting in harm to the patient, that is considered malpractice. Misdiagnosis prevents the patient from receiving the treatment they need and conversely, in healthy patients, the patient receives treatment they don’t need.
Medication errors can occur in many ways throughout the chain of its distribution. The wrong medication can be administered, or the wrong dosage, an incorrect label may be printed on a medication, the patient may be prescribed a medication they’re allergic to, a medication prescribed may interact dangerously with other medications the patient is already taking, and failing to warn the patient of the medication’s common side effects.
Such as an incorrect procedure being performed, unnecessary surgery, damaging organs, nerves, or tissues during surgery, an incorrect amount of anesthesia is administered, the use of non-sterile surgical instruments, medical equipment left inside the patient, or inadequate care after surgery.
Defective or Mishandled Medical Equipment
A defective medical device or improperly handled medical devices can cause harm to patients. Unfortunately, patients are often injured by defective medical devices before the defects are discovered. If the manufacturer was aware of or should have known about the defect, they can be held liable by victims.
Labor and Delivery Errors
If a condition isn’t properly diagnosed during prenatal care or a doctor fails to recognize signs of danger during labor and delivery, the mother and the child are at risk for possibly life-long debilitating repercussions. This is considered medical malpractice if the injuries were preventable.
