Medical malpractice can occur in many different ways. Sometimes doctors are overworked, lack appropriate assistance, and/or not properly educated or licensed in their field or about a prescription drug they are prescribing. Any one of these circumstances can cause the doctor to make mistakes that can injure a patient severely. Hospitals are required to be adequately staffed with nurses and doctors and they must have checked the background and qualifications of the staff within reasonable means. Hospitals are held responsible for the actions of their employees.

Prescription drug errors are the most common form of medical malpractice claims with some 7,000 hospitalized patients per year receiving the wrong medication. Other areas for medical malpractice claims include:

  • Surgical errors
  • Birth injury
  • Amputation of wrong limb
  • Delay of treatment
  • Failure to properly read X-rays or mammograms
  • Pediatric malpractice
  • Hospital negligence
  • Anesthesiologist malpractice

Statistics from the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation rank medical negligence and malpractice deaths between the fifth and eighth leading causes of death in the United States. According to the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) between five and eight reports of surgical errors being performed including operating on the wrong patient, performing the wrong procedure, or on the wrong site, occurred each month during 2003.
