Common Forms of Dangerous Medical Malpractice

For every correct way there is to perform a medical procedure, there is a dozen more ways to do it incorrectly or dangerously. Even simple tasks, such as drawing blood, can become harmful to the patient if negligence is present in the hospital or clinic. In order to stop medical malpractice in all its forms, we must all be aware of how it occurs most frequently.

Common medical malpractice forms include:

  • Failing to recognize or diagnose an issue.
  • Misdiagnosing a problem as something else.
  • Prescribing the wrong or dangerous medications.
  • Operating on an incorrect body part.
  • Leaving a foreign object inside a surgery patient.
  • Mixing up patient records (mistaken identity).
  • Taking too long to treat or see a patient.

Medical malpractice may be caused by:

  • Exhaustion
  • Incompetence
  • Lack of communication
  • Everyday negligence
