All employees and workers have to maintain a certain standard when completing their work-related tasks. With regards to doctors and medical professionals, this means they must adhere to a certain standard of care when dealing with their patients. When they fail to meet this standard, they end up making mistakes that could lead to someone’s worsened medical condition.
Mistakes can be in many forms, as discussed on this blog. They could be surgical mistakes or misdiagnosis, or could be in relation to nursing home injuries, as discussed in last week’s post. Regardless of the type of negligence that led to the medical malpractice case, the end result is often someone suffering at the very hands of the person who was charged with improving the patient’s condition.
Unfortunately, proving medical malpractice is often difficult-it is not enough to show that someone acted unacceptably. It must also be shown that there was a resultant injury or death. Additionally, Massachusetts adds another layer of difficulty, by requiring the claim be brought before a trial for determination of whether there is enough evidence to proceed to court or not.
