Types of Medical Malpractice
There are many injuries and illnesses that can arise from medical malpractice. These are the three types of medical malpractice:
- Misdiagnosis - when a doctor or health care worker doesn't provide the best care when diagnosing a patient that leads to further injury, illness, or death
- Failure to Treat - a health care provider that does not treat symptoms which causes a negative outcome
- Errors During a Procedure -when a health care provider makes a mistake before, during, or after a medical procedure
When a health care provider is examining you, they are supposed to consider every possible conclusion that could arise from your symptoms. Doctors' "standard of care" is taught as the minimum required in order to treat each patient. When a health care provider doesn't weigh each and every symptom and try to determine what the condition may be that you're suffering from, that can result in a misdiagnosis.
In certain cases, a doctor or another health care worker may fail to treat their patients. This can occur when a health care worker doesn't follow the three safety rules that apply to their patients which are:
- Having written procedures in a manual describing specific expectations of care
- Standard of care procedures that determine how to treat and test each patient
- Following a doctor's orders
