Not every bad medical outcome is due to the negligence of a health care provider. People sometimes die or are injured even when they receive good medical treatment. Each year, however, hundreds of thousands of people are injured or die as a result of medical errors. These errors can be the result of overwork, poor judgment, inexperience, lack of training, inadequate staffing or just plain carelessness. When these errors occur, they are often devastating and result in permanent and disabling injuries or death. Medical errors caused by the negligence of a medical provider may include:
- improper management of labor or delivery or prenatal care
- misdiagnosis or delay in the diagnosis of cancer, including breast cancer, colon cancer and skin cancer
- failure to diagnose serious medical conditions, including heart attacks and strokes
- giving patients too much medication or the wrong medication and
- surgical and anesthesia errors
