Doctors Medical Malpractice

Doctors are humans and as such have all the strengths and weakness of any other human. However for some reason people tend to think of doctors as ‘super human’, maybe because of the length and intensity of education and training doctors must follow. But for whatever reason, these expectations can be unreasonable at times. Likewise a doctor can also make a mistake. The reason for the mistake is not important. It is the mistakes which result in their patient suffering further injury or distress that form the basis for a malpractice lawsuit.

What is Doctors Medical Malpractice?

Doctors medical malpractice happens when a patient suffers an injury or death due to the attending doctor failing to provide medical care in accordance with the accepted professional standards. Doctors are human and don't know everything nor can they reasonably be expected to know everything. However they should know enough to ensure their patient is cared for properly. They should also know when they need to seek a consultation with another doctor who is more knowledgeable about a patient's condition.

Doctors are also expected to have a certain level of skill for the type of medicine they are performing. A family or general practitioner cannot be expected to have the same knowledge of the cardiac system as a cardiac surgeon. But they should know when they need to contact the cardiac surgeon to discuss a patient's case. Doctors are also expected to have the skills to perform their job. A surgeon would be held to a higher level of blame than a general practitioner when it came to doing surgery.

It is when doctors fail to follow established protocols or fail to seek more knowledgeable doctors that doctors medical malpractice occurs. In the UK a doctor, under the rules of the General Medical Council, is also required to inform a patient and/or their family when a treatment isn't working. Failure to follow this practice can also lead to a doctor’s medical malpractice case.
