Common Mistakes That Contribute to Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice, unfortunately, is an all-too-often occurrence. It is also one of the top leading causes of death in our country. Medical malpractice is a broad term for any wrongdoing that is done on a patient by a health care professional. The wrongdoing may be committed by anyone who works in health care, including doctors, surgeons, nurses, orderlies, and even nursing assistants.

How Liability Is Determined in Malpractice

What you may not realize is that medical malpractice can occur even without direct action. Take a case of nursing home abuse, where the wrongdoer fully intends to do either emotional or physical harm to the victim. That person meant to cause harm. In cases of malpractice, it may be done purely by the lack of attention, error, and even inaction.

These are some of the most common mistakes that occur:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • X-ray errors
  • Medication errors
  • Pharmaceutical error
  • Surgical error
  • Inability to treat

While these are only some of the more common scenarios, each and every case will have its set of circumstances. We urge anyone who has become injured from an unsteady surgeon’s hand, had their condition worsened after receiving the wrong treatment, or were not diagnosed properly because of a misread X-ray, to call a San Antonio medical malpractice attorney as quickly as possible.
