By legal definitions, medical malpractice occurs whenever a doctor, nurse, physician, or any medical practitioner exercises a care less than the acceptable standard, or conducts a treatment unapproved by either accepted medical practices or the patient. Medical malpractice must also cause real harm to the patient that causes real damages, such as further medical costs or a loss of wages. Under these definitions, medical malpractice can occur in practically any situation that plays out in a medical environment.
Some of the more common reasons why people file a medical malpractice claim include:
Any incident of medical malpractice is unacceptable. Doctors and medical staff members must accept that patients always require the best care and that all avoidable mistakes must be prevented entirely. Medical malpractice claims are often the best way to prevent similar errors and negligence from occurring in the future, as they send a clear message to medical groups, like WellStar Health System, that medical malpractice will not be tolerated.
