Mistakes can be made by anyone as no one is perfect. But, mistakes in the medical field can have fatal consequences. Medical malpractice is a breach of the healthcare professional’s duty to provide appropriate care. Patients can suffer severe injury or sudden death as a result of medical malpractice. Medical professionals such as doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and hospitals can be negligent in several ways- prescribing the wrong medication, administering anesthesia improperly, getting an incomplete medical history or putting the wrong information in a patient’s medical record.
