Medical malpractice occurs when the conduct of medical professionals, including doctors, nurses, physicians’ assistants, dentists, pharmacists, nursing home staff, and others, falls below the “standard of care,” or the level of care that similarly situated medical professionals are supposed to provide to their patients. When treating patients, medical professionals are expected to do what a reasonable physician would do under the same or similar circumstances. Medical negligence claims most commonly result from mistakes by professionals during surgery, childbirth, amputation, and administration of anesthesia, misuse of medications, implants, or medical devices, failure to diagnose an illness or render proper treatment following a correct diagnosis, and a professional’s failure to obtain a patient’s informed consent for treatment.
