Common Mistakes That Lead to Malpractice Claims

Essentially, medical malpractice is a breach of a healthcare provider’s duty of care that results in an injury to a patient. In a malpractice case, a provider must commit an act or omission that a reasonably competent practitioner would not.

This can happen in many ways, including:

  • Diagnostic error: A doctor can make a mistake about diagnosis, delaying treatment so the patient’s condition worsens. Diagnostic mistakes also cover failing to order appropriate medical tests, misreading test results, failing to observe symptoms, and failing to associate symptoms with the correct condition.
  • Treatment error: A doctor can order inappropriate treatment that either is ineffective, allows the condition to worsen, or directly harms the patient in some way.
  • Medication error: There are several types of medication errors, including prescribing the wrong drug, filling the prescription with the wrong drug, prescribing the wrong dosage, administering the wrong dosage, and ordering or administering drugs in dangerous combinations.
  • Surgical error: No surgery is without risks, but too often patients suffer harm from anesthesia errors, incision errors, wrong-side surgery, wrong-site surgery, objects left in the body cavity, and other avoidable mishaps.
  • Postoperative errors: Providers must monitor patients closely after surgery. Postoperative infections are almost entirely preventable when patients receive competent care.

Hope Law Firm represents Iowans who have been harmed by medical doctors, dentists, surgeons, nurses, nurse practitioners, chiropractors, pharmacists, hospitals, and nursing homes.
