Long Island Medical Errors
Types of Medical Malpractice
There are many different types of medical malpractice, including misdiagnosis, a failure to diagnose, medical negligence, medication errors and more. One of the most common types of medical malpractice stems from medical errors. Medical errors happen when a doctor, nurse, or other health care professional fail to either properly determine the appropriate method of care and treatment for a patient, or they fail to accurately execute said treatment(s). In either instance, medical errors occur and the patient is the one who needlessly suffers.
Mixing up medical charts, calling in the wrong prescription to the pharmacy, administering too much or too little medication, neglecting to follow proper protocols before, during and after surgery, failing to recognize and treat those in need of medical care, are all examples of medical errors.

It is unreasonable to expect that a doctor, nurse, dentist or other medical professional will go the entire length of their career without making a single mistake. The problem arises when those mistakes go unchecked and/or result in serious injuries or the death of a patient.
