Unfortunately, there are many opportunities for error in the health care process. In fact, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), medical negligence is the third-leading cause of death in the US. Numbers one and two? Heart disease and cancer.
Medical malpractice is legally defined as “negligence committed by a professional health care provider—a doctor, nurse, dentist, technician, hospital or hospital worker—whose performance of duties departs from a standard of practice of those with similar training and experience, resulting in harm to a patient or patients.” In plain terms, a surgeon may perform a surgery incorrectly. A doctor may share an inaccurate diagnosis. Or, diagnosis may come too late.
