What Is Medical Negligence?
Medical negligence is an incident or situation in which a doctor, dentist, nurse or other medical professional is negligent in their treatment of their patient.
This negligence then results in a failure in their duty of care. There are many different things which can be classed as medical negligence, such as giving a patient the wrong drugs, failing to spot injuries or symptoms or even performing an operation on the wrong person. This mistake then leads to physical or psychological harm to the patient involved.
Medical negligence can also be a patient receiving poor care which results in medical issues later on, or even simple events such as your GP not referring you to a hospital specialist.
Medical negligence should never be confused with poor professional conduct which is quite different. Medical negligence only applies when the lack of care has meant consequences for the patient such as loss or injury.
