A mistake or a small error during a procedure is not certainly a malpractice medical case. In order to prove medical malpractice, four elements must be met:
What do these factors mean?
Causation is a question of whether the doctor, nurse, or other type of healthcare provider’s actions actually caused the injury in question, or if the patient’s own illness, poor health, or another factor caused the injury.
For example: did the patient suffer from large amounts of blood loss after falling off their motorcycle, or did the doctor improperly treat the wound, causing large blood loss?
Duty to the patient places the healthcare provider into the story of your claim. Was it this specific doctor’s job to perform your surgery? Was this nurse supposed to make rounds at a certain time while you were in the hospital? More or less, was it this specific healthcare provider’s job to care for you?
Negligence, or breach of duty, is related to the above element. If the healthcare provider did have a duty, they have breached that duty by failing to act or acting incorrectly.
In terms of negligence, we look to the “standard of care” – did the healthcare provider in question act in a manner similar to that of another reasonable healthcare provider with similar training and experience?
Damages may be a more familiar term. Damages refers to the compensation received for loss or injury. Damages often comes in terms of money paid to the patient, or their family, or in the form of medical bill payment.
