What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice in New Jersey occurs when a healthcare provider fails to meet accepted standards when treating patients. A deviation of the standard of care, in short, is medical negligence.

Determining if a provider’s actions rose to the level of malpractice will require an investigation into the facts of your case. Generally, a provider is held liable for malpractice if they failed to act in a manner that a skilled, knowledgeable, and reasonable provider would act under the same or similar circumstances.

What Are the Most Common Medical Malpractice?

When medical professionals fail to administer healthcare to the standard demanded by the medical industry, injuries can often result. Victims of this type of negligence deserve compensation, but not every bad outcome constitutes medical malpractice.

The most common medical malpractice mistakes include, but are not limited to:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis – Failing to diagnose a serious condition or misdiagnosing one can lead to significant complications, including death.
  • Surgical errors – Common surgical errors include wrong-site surgery, leaving objects in the body during surgery, and performing unnecessary surgeries.
  • Pharmaceutical / medication errors – Errors can include prescribing the wrong medication, incorrect doses, or an allergic reaction to drugs.
  • Birth injuries – These injuries occur during labor and delivery, often due to medical negligence in the form of failing to monitor fetal conditions or delayed C-section deliveries.
  • Anesthesia mistakes – Anesthesiologists must properly administer anesthesia or administer it at too high levels, which can result in brain damage.
  • Emergency room errors: Mistakes made during urgent care that can have serious consequences. Examples include misdiagnosis, medication errors, and improper procedures.
  • Hospital malpractice: Negligence by a hospital or its staff that causes harm to a patient. This can involve errors by doctors, nurses, or other healthcare professionals.
  • Testing Errors: Mistakes in conducting medical tests or interpreting the results. This can lead to delayed diagnosis, inappropriate treatment, or unnecessary procedures.
  • Cancer misdiagnosis: Failing to identify cancer when it's present, or diagnosing cancer incorrectly. This can have devastating consequences for a patient's health and treatment options.
  • Pharmacy errors: Mistakes made by pharmacists or pharmacy staff that can lead to patients receiving the wrong medication, dosage, or instructions.

This is not an exhaustive list, so many other medical errors may also qualify as medical malpractice. The best way to determine if your injury is the result of medical malpractice is to reach out to a medical malpractice lawyer near you.
