Did a Doctor Fail to Provide Proper Medical Treatment?

However, doctors are human and sometimes, mistakes occur.

Differentiating Between Treatment Errors & Poor Outcomes

In order to pursue a medical malpractice case for treatment errors, one must first establish that actual treatment errors occurred. Poor outcomes, such as worsening of a disease or death, are not necessarily evidence of improper treatment on their own. Instead, one must prove that a doctor failed to provide reasonable treatment based on current medical knowledge, common treatment methods, accepted protocol, and/or up-to-date treatment methods and procedures.

Some common examples of treatment errors include:

  • Outdated treatment methods
  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Inadequate post-surgery care
  • Improper equipment sterilization
  • Failure to warn of known risks
  • Wrong patient errors
  • Incorrect medication/dosage
  • Miscommunication
  • Inadequate preoperative planning
  • General incompetence

Secondly, one must establish that such treatment errors led to harm or injury. If a doctor implemented a treatment plan that differs from the treatment provided by other competent doctors and the results are poor, you may have a treatment error case. In contrast, if the treatment plan your doctor prescribed had poor results, but most competent doctors would have followed the same treatment plan, you likely do not have a case for medical malpractice.
