At its most basic, medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider, an individual, or a facility provides a patient with professionally substandard care that harms the patient. To file a successful medical malpractice case, a patient must prove that the healthcare provider failed to act with a degree of diligence, care, and skill as expected of reasonably competent providers facing either the same or similar circumstances.
This means that when you are a patient of a doctor or a facility, you are entitled to be treated with the same level of care, diligence, and skill that other patients would receive from reasonably knowledgeable and experienced providers assessing or treating those patients.

Surgical errors can range from operating on the wrong body part to leaving a medical tool inside a patient’s body and from administering anesthesia improperly to failing to protect a surgical patient from infection. Surgical errors are frighteningly common. If you have suffered physical pain to an unexpected degree in the wake of a surgical procedure, you may benefit from exploring your legal options.
Although physicians and hospitals are the most named defendants in medical malpractice suits, there are also nurses, nursing homes, and other healthcare providers who might commit acts of medical malpractice. For example, failing to care for a sedentary patient’s needs properly can lead to bedsores and skin infections. Not all bedsores are evidence of medical negligence, although they are a significant warning sign that a patient may be suffering from unlawful neglect.
