Many medical malpractice claims occur during routine care or surgical procedures rather than during more complicated aspects of care. Medical care providers often do not implement procedures concerning such care and mistakes are made or vital aspects of care are ignored.
It is very important for medical professionals to not commit diagnosis-related negligence when providing care to patients. When a medical professional negligently fails to properly diagnose a patient, it can result in a patient suffering great harm. Sadly, diagnosis-related negligence can sometimes even result in a patient's death.
It can be very harmful when a medical professional commits negligence while performing a surgical procedure on a patient. Thus, it is very important for medical professionals to act properly when providing surgical care. No patient should have to have his or her health and/or life put at risk because a medical professional acted negligently in connection to a surgery.
