Common Types of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice can occur anywhere a healthcare professional has a duty to provide appropriate treatment to a patient. However, there are forms of medical malpractice that are more common than others.

Misdiagnosis & Failure to Diagnose

Unfortunately, doctors who give an incorrect diagnosis or fail to provide the correct diagnosis within a timely manner are all too common in the healthcare industry. Misdiagnosis can cause a patient to undergo unnecessary treatment or take medication with adverse side effects. A delayed diagnosis can prevent the patient from receiving much needed treatment that may be the difference between life and death.

Conditions that are most affected by a diagnostic error include:

  • Cancer
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke

Surgical Errors

Surgery is a high-pressure environment that requires doctors and nurses to be at the top of their game. If a surgeon, anesthesiologist, or other member of the O.R. makes a mistake, it can cause the patient to suffer severe or fatal injuries.

Some examples of surgical malpractice include:

  • Operating on the wrong body party
  • Administering the incorrect dosage of anesthesia
  • Undertaking a procedure that the patient was not informed of or did not agree to
  • Operating while under the influence of drugs or alcohol

Medication Errors

When hospitals are understaffed or employ undertrained workers, they are prone to making medication mistakes. These mistakes can include administering the completely wrong medication to a patient, giving the patient the wrong dosage of a prescribed medication, or administering a medication that the patient's chart says they are allergic to.

Birth Injuries

Obstetricians have a responsibility to ensure that both mother and baby receive appropriate medical care during pregnancy, labor, and delivery. While some birth injuries are completely unpreventable, there are many circumstances that doctors and nurses are trained to respond to, including:

Not responding to or failing to provide the appropriate treatment for any of these conditions can be a form of medical malpractice.

If you or a loved one suffer any of these types of medical malpractice or another type of medical mistake, reach out to our law firm immediately! A skilled medical malpractice attorney in Louisville is ready to discuss the details of your case and guide you to a satisfactory resolution.
