Understanding Medical Negligence

Understanding Medical Negligence

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional fails to meet accepted standards of clinical practice and causes harm as a direct result. Some examples of medical negligence in Kingsburg medical facilities include:

  • Misdiagnosing or failing to diagnose serious conditions
  • Surgical errors and mistakes during invasive procedures
  • Birth injuries to mother or child due to substandard obstetric care
  • Medication errors such as over-prescribing or giving the wrong drug
  • Failure to quickly identify and treat emergency health issues
  • Ordering improper treatments not indicated for the condition
  • Not obtaining informed consent before invasive treatments
  • Neglecting to monitor patients correctly after procedures
  • Discharging patients prematurely without adequate follow-up care

These kinds of breaches can lead to devastating injuries for patients in the Kingsburg area and surrounding Central Valley region. When the direct actions of a medical professional fall below acceptable standards, victims have the right to hold those practitioners legally accountable through medical negligence claims.
