When a doctor makes a mistake in diagnosis or treatment, it raises a number of concerns, first and foremost being the well-being of the patient and the impact of the error on his or her condition. Eventually, the incident may raise a different sort of red flag, when the patient asks whether the doctor’s mistake amounts to medical malpractice. Tragically, doctors, nurses, hospital staff, and other trusted professionals can make mistakes—and the worst errors may even turn deadly.
Medical malpractice in Baltimore, Cumberland, West Virginia and Washington D.C. is more common than you might think. All health care providers have a duty to adhere to the acceptable standards of care for their profession. When a doctor, nurse, technician, or other provider falls below these standards, it may be considered medical malpractice or negligence. Sometimes those actions are the result of carelessness or recklessness. In any event, these mistakes are usually preventable.
