Medical malpractice occurs when a negligent act or omission by a doctor or other medical professional results in damage or harm to a patient. Medical negligence could include misdiagnosis, treatment or illness management. If such negligence results in injury to a patient, a case could arise against a doctor if his or her actions deviated from generally accepted standards of medical practice. Malpractice and negligence claims could also exist against a hospital for improper care such as problems with medications, sanitation or nursing care. An action for medical malpractice may also be present against state or federal agencies that operate hospital facilities. Medical malpractice cases include actions that fall below acceptable standards in cancer misdiagnosis, laparoscopic and thoracoscopic surgery, hospital infections, surgical and hospital malpractice, pharmacy errors, and more.
