What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice is a form of professional negligence that occurs when a medical professional fails to use the degree of care that would ordinarily be used by another medical professional with similar experience or training. Common forms of medical malpractice include failing to order the appropriate diagnostic tests, misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, performing the incorrect surgical procedure, leaving surgical instruments inside of patients, and emergency room errors.
