When a patient is harmed through a medical mistake, the error is legally defined as “medical malpractice.” There are many ways a patient can be harmed by physicians:
Surgery mistakes during operations may include an artery being nicked, organ punctures or destruction, a wrong body part being operated on, improper sterilization of equipment, surgical instruments or gauze left in the body, and more.
Anesthesia miscalculations may occur due to giving too much anesthesia, improper intubating, defective equipment, and failure to monitor vital signs. These miscalculations can result in brain damage and death.
Post-operative negligence includes inadequate or improper patient monitoring or administration of medication, not following proper sterilization techniques, unsafe patient movement resulting in falls, and more.
Delayed diagnosis and misdiagnosis can lead to a serious illness not being treated properly or on time. The end result of a delayed diagnosis or a misdiagnosis may be serious medical issues or an unnecessary, hastened death.
Medication mistakes occur when a physician prescribes an incorrect dosage, medication is not correct for your disease or illness, or when another provider administers the medication incorrectly.
Childbirth injuries include brain injuries, broken bones, damaged nerves, and not providing a medically necessary cesarean section. These birth injuries can also be caused by a medical provider’s poor prenatal care, failure to anticipate birth complications, failure to identify birth defects, and more.
The Hippocratic Oath requires a new physician to swear that they will “do no harm” to patients and that they will uphold specific ethical standards in the practice of medicine. When a physician makes harmful or injurious patient mistakes, they can be held liable monetarily for not providing a “reasonable standard of care.” Failure to meet reasonable standards of patient care in Pennsylvania may constitute legally actionable medical malpractice.
