MD&L won $10,000,000 for a middle aged widow suffering spastic quadriplegia, partial blindness and brain injury as a result of the failure to diagnose a pulmonary embolism following a knee replacement procedure.
A recent study by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences estimated that as many as 98,000 patients may be killed each year in hospitals alone as a result of medical errors. Earlier studies also found that this was a serious national problem. Between 44,000 and 98,000 people die in hospitals annually each year due to preventable medical errors, the Institute of Medicine found.
Medical malpractice is really a confusing term. The correct term should be medical, hospital or nursing negligence. What it simply means is when a physician, hospital or nurse have failed to follow accepted care standards and that failure has resulted in injury to the patient, that patient has a right to make a claim through our court system.
Negligence can encompass an error in diagnosis, treatment or illness management, and can implicate the doctor, hospital or health facility, or government agency that manages the hospital or health facility.
