Understanding Errors Made By Physicians
According to a study by doctors at Johns Hopkins, medical errors kill more people than lower respiratory disease, such as bronchitis and emphysema. Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States, causing over 250,000 fatalities annually in the U.S.
Common examples of negligent doctor errors include:
- Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
- Medication errors
- Emergency room errors
- Hospital errors
- Surgical errors
- Anesthesia errors
The “standard of care” is adopted and accepted throughout the medical field, which requires health care providers to offer their patients with the type and quality of care which a careful hospital or medical professional would deliver – . Failure to abide by that standard can be the foundation of a medical malpractice claim.
