Doctor and Physician Negligence
Be Aware of Doctor and Physician Negligence
It is a well known fact that doctors perform millions of surgeries that every day all across America. Unfortunately, surgical accidents occur far more often than many people realize. It is important for you, the patient, to understand the consequences that can occur if your doctor, surgeon, or other medical personnel cause you harm due to their carelessness or irresponsibility.
Doctor and physician negligence can take on several forms. One way that this can occur is for the doctor to perform a faulty surgery. The faulty surgery that results is by no fault your own, but you are the individual that must life with the results of this negligence. In most instances, the doctors that perform the surgery and the physicians that refer you to the doctor work hand in hand. Many physicians are general practitioners with expertise and experience limited to a few standard areas. A specialist that concentrates in one field can often pinpoint the problem that needs special and/or immediate medial attention. Miscommunication between these two professionals can result in poor or faulty healthcare or even potentially life-threatening health crises.
Doctor and physician negligence is not always due to irreversible damage. It may be that the negligence is a result of the lack of healthcare that has been provided by the doctor and physician. If a doctor and/or physician does not fully examine you, or is not as thorough as they need to be, especially in detrimental situations, they can be held liable for patient negligence. Every doctor and physician must uphold their oath that they will not neglect their patients. Any doctor and physician that does so can receive harsh legal action against them.
