What You Should Know About Medical Malpractice In NY

What Is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice refers to any negligence committed by a healthcare worker that results in injury or death, where that healthcare provider failed to adhere to accepted standards for the relevant treatment, surgery, or other procedure. Medical malpractice claims can be brought against doctors, nurses, pathologists, pharmacists, technicians, and many other types of healthcare workers. Not only that, but victims of medical malpractice can also sue the facility responsible for the injury, such as nursing homes, hospitals, or other medical establishments.

What Are the Causes of Medical Malpractice?

Whether it’s a nurse who’s tired and overworked, a surgeon who is unprepared, or a nursing home that is short-staffed, there is no excuse for medical malpractice — it is always preventable. While each claim is different, some of the most common causes include:

  • Hospital Negligence – from falling short of medical standards and inadequate employee training to improper protocols and poor sanitation, the way a hospital operates can put the lives and well-being of their patients at risk.
  • Healthcare Worker Negligence – healthcare practitioners have a duty to provide adequate care for their patients, like making accurate diagnoses, informing patients of treatment risks, and more. Any breach of this duty that harms a patient may be considered medical malpractice.
  • Failed Equipment – if a machine suddenly shuts down or malfunctions and it results in an injury or death, it can be considered medical malpractice. This negligence can be on the part of the machine’s operator, a failure to properly maintain the machine on the part of the hospital, or medical facility, or even a manufacturer defect.
