  • Physicians who are to be held responsible for medical negligence

    October 26, 2015

    Most consumers across the world have a great deal of faith in doctors who are supposedly well trained and schooled to be qualified and responsible for good public health care. However, doctors are also humans who are subject to mistakes at work like other employees in different professions.

    But a distinct difference is that doctors are expected to be meticulous and skilled in their medical profession, especially those who specialize in some medical component to be called specialists or consultants. They are supposedly more knowledgeable and skillful in their preferred field of medicine with precise judgments to be known as medical experts.

    Doctors or medical specialists may also experience ‘bad’ days when their medical judgments could be clouded and things do not go the way they plan. They could:

    • Misdiagnose a health condition
    • Overlook a hidden growth
    • Be over-confident about the situation to prepare for emergencies
    • Miss out supporting symptoms
    • Experience fatigue due to busy schedules
    • Be inexperienced
    • Lack the necessary medical facilities and technologies for making better diagnoses
    • Mix up reports of patients
    • Prescribe wrong medications
    • Recommend wrong treatments
    • Administer wrong dosage of medications

    Although non-invasive procedures are preferred today, surgery is the last resort and non-option for some. There is always a degree of risks and danger with surgical procedures no matter how simple the procedure is on paper. A routine appendix operation could turn haywire when it bursts during the procedure and complication sets in. An infection could come on set in and a day’s stay in the hospital becomes a week or more. 

    Understanding Medical Negligence and its Consequences

    Medical negligence could come in many ways to cause adverse consequences for the patient. Some medical negligence acts may be minor while others are of a more serious nature to bring on long term disabilities and even fatality.

    Medical professionals have been trained over many years with not only knowledge but practical and ethical standards in healthcare. Doctors and hospitals that do not provide the stipulated high and consistent standard of safe healthcare are subject to high liability by the law with potential lawsuits from patients and families of victims as they tend to be negligent in their work conduct or performance.

    Doctors and medical caregivers are supposed to exercise utmost precautions and ethical standards to ensure total safety to all patients. Medical negligence by doctors and medical caregivers could cause dire consequences for the patients and their families. This includes:

    • Worsened health condition of the patient
    • Continual or increased discomfort and pain
    • Increased medical expenses
    • Increased emotional trauma and stress
    • Loss of income
    • Loss of job opportunities
    • Continuous medical treatments and medications

    Patients who experienced medical negligence may suffer greater hardships if no solution is forthcoming.
