MEDICAL MALPRACTICE (General)
The sole purpose of doctors, nurses, and hospital facilities is to care for those suffering from injury or illness. Unfortunately, sub-standard care and treatment can become the cause of further injury. “Medical Malpractice” is a term used to refer to incidents in which doctors, nurses, and hospital facilities cause injury through negligent or improper treatment or care. Any improper action by a staff member of a hospital, by a doctor, by a nurse, by pharmacists, by dentists, and by technicians, can be considered medical malpractice.
