Medical Malpractice is defined as “lapses in judgment, skill or coordination of care; mistaken diagnosis; system failures that lead to deaths or the failure to rescue dying patients; and preventable complications of care.” from Hofstra Law.
Medical malpractice is a real issue happening in the United states where patients are misdiagnosed by doctors or given the wrong medication to treat an illness. Nearly 225,000 people die each year from some form of medical malpractice whether that be from surgical errors to misdiagnoses. This is an ongoing problem in our healthcare system that stems from unorganized and uncoordinated hospital wings.
Only 2% of victims from medical malpractice file claims against their doctors for compensation and even less are granted the compensation they deserve. It is also stated that nearly 1.5 million people suffer from medication errors each year from poor monitoring of doctors.
