When someone is sick or injured, they turn to medical doctors to help them. Through diagnosis and treatment, it is every physician’s oath-sworn responsibility to help their patients and to do no harm. Using their knowledge and expertise, every doctor must assist their patients in making the best decisions for their health care and see that they get the highest quality of care.
Physicians do make mistakes to the detriment of their patients. Doctor negligence can occur for many reasons including: exhaustion; seeing too many patients; communication mistakes between staff, doctors, and other facilities; and prescription errors as well as mistakes made during surgery or a procedure. These types of mistakes can result in serious injuries and subsequent medical conditions; such errors can even threaten the lives of patients.
