Such acts and omissions include improper, untimely, or otherwise negligent performance, diagnosis, or treatment. They can be committed by a physician, a hospital staff member, a lab technician, or other health care worker.
Common medical malpractice mistakes include:
- Birth-Related Injuries
- Surgical Errors
- Failure to obtain a surgical specialist
- Medication Errors
- Unnecessary Surgery
- Pharmacy Error
- Laboratory Errors
- Failure to Diagnose
- Nursing and Extended Care Facility Negligence
