Charleston Medical Malpractice Lawyer: Mullins McLeod
Types of Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice is defined as a failure on the part of a medical professional (such as a doctor, nurse, or pharmacist) to provide the accepted level of care to a patient. This can occur in a number of ways:
- A doctor may fail to observe an important symptom, or fail to recognize an illness entirely. This may lead to the doctor releasing the patient without treatment, or prescribing the wrong medication.
- A surgeon, or member of a surgical team, may commit an error during a surgical procedure, leading to a worsening of the patient's condition, or the creation of an all new condition.
- A doctor or nurse may fail to follow procedure, or commit an error during the birthing process, causing injury or death to the mother, child, or both.
- A pharmacist may provide the wrong medication, or incorrect dosage, to a patient, causing further injury or illness.
- An anesthesiologist may administer anesthesia in the wrong dose, or fail to check for potential complications before administering.
