Some of the most common types of medical malpractice include:
This may include failure to identify a condition or misdiagnosing a condition. Either of this results in the patient not being able to get the treatment they need in good time. This can have deadly results.
- Errors in medication
This may include improper dosage of the right medication or administering the wrong medication. In either case, the patient’s condition may worsen and this may lead to fatalities. Patients may also develop negative reactions to wrong medications, leading to other complications.
- Mistakes with anesthesia
This may involve under or over administration of anesthesia. This can lead to patients suffering pain or can result in complications such as patients not recovering consciousness after the procedure.
- Birth injuries
These include injuries that may occur to the baby or mother as a result of the negligence of healthcare professionals.
- Surgical errors
These include errors made by healthcare professionals before or during surgery such as operating on the wrong part of the body or damaging an organ during the operation.
Medical malpractice can have serious consequences. It is therefore important for victims to hold healthcare professionals accountable for their mistakes and seek compensation for injuries and other damages resulting from malpractice.
