What Counts as Medical Malpractice?
When a licensed medical professional acts outside or against medical industry standards, they have committed medical malpractice. A bad treatment outcome does not mean malpractice was committed.
A good question to ask yourself is, “Would things be different if I went to a different health care provider?”
If the answer is no, then you do not have a case. If the answer is yes or you are unsure, it is recommended that you contact an attorney. You may have a right to compensation. More than that, you may have a right to hold accountable the at-fault health care provider, potentially saving future patients from going through the same experience.
Common Types of Medical Malpractice
Malpractice may be committed in any health care setting, from the operating room to the labor and delivery room, to the patient room of a general physician.
Medical malpractice includes but is not limited to the following:
- Medication errors: This involves any negligence pertaining to medicine, such as administering the wrong type of medication, too much or too little of the correct medication, and failing to consider a patient’s known allergies and preexisting conditions when prescribing a medication.
- Anesthesia errors: Similar to errors with medication, anesthesia errors involve the incorrect administration of anesthesia, such as giving the wrong type or wrong dose, improper intubation, etc.
- Surgical errors: This includes instances in which a surgeon leaves a surgical tool in the body, uses tools that haven’t been sterilized, and/or operates on the wrong side of the body.
- Birth injuries: This type of negligence may include ignoring the mother’s symptoms, failing to address fetal distress, or delaying an emergency C-section. Please note that birth injuries may occur right before, during, or after birth.
Hospital-acquired infections may also be caused by medical malpractice, such as poor sanitation and sterilization practices. Some of the most common HAIs are blood infections, surgical site infections, and catheter-associated urinary tract infections.
