PROTECT YOURSELF FROM MEDICAL ERRORS
Medical malpractice occurs when treatment by a healthcare provider falls below the accepted standard of care in the medical community and leads to the injury or death of a patient. According to a report issued by a federal government task force, somewhere between 44,000 and 98,000 people die each year because of mistakes made by their doctors. . A medical mistake can take several different forms such as the failure to properly diagnose a patient’s problem, the failure to choose the correct course of action to treat the problem a patient has, or the failure to properly perform the treatment plan chosen. No matter what form a particular mistake takes, all medical mistakes share one characteristic–they can be deadly.
