Medical Malpractice and Patient Safety
This week is National Patient Safety Awareness Week. This campaign is dedicated to increasing the awareness and importance of patient safety to all healthcare professionals and the public. Everyday patients safety should be the priority for healthcare professionals, but unfortunately, that is not always the case. Medical Malpractice cases occur when a health care provider causes injury to a patient.
Patients and their families should be aware of and receive the standard of care that they deserve. Medical malpractice can occur when a healthcare professional is negligent in a situation regarding your medical care. It can also occur if they provided you with inappropriate/ unnecessary treatment. Some examples of this include
- Failure to recognize or address symptoms
- Improper testing, medication, or operations
- Conducting unnecessary surgeries
- Poor aftercare services
These, as well as many others, can result in further injury and harm to the patient. This is why proper patient care is so important.
If you or a loved one believe that you have suffered from medical malpractice call Rob Levine & Associates today. It is important to the healthcare industry that you get the safe and proper treatment you deserve. It is also important that if you do not get safe and proper treatment that you receive the compensation that you deserve.
