What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional deviates from the accepted standards of practice in their field, resulting in harm to a patient. This could entail errors in diagnosis, treatment, aftercare, or health management. To be considered malpractice, the professional’s act or omission must be proven negligent, i.e., another professional in the same field would not have acted similarly in the same circumstances.

Examples Of Medical Malpractice

Canadian emergency rooms are some of the busiest places in healthcare where multiple doctors, nurses, technicians and staff are helping dozens of patients receive the medical attention they need. The unfortunate reality for these environments is the increased possibility of being a victim of malpractice.

Emergency room medical malpractice is when the standard of care has not been met and due to negligent actions, further injury, suffering or loss has been sustained.

Some examples of emergency room medical malpractice are:

  • Appendicitis
  • Stroke
  • Heart attacks
  • Brain aneurysms
  • Contaminated blood transfusion
  • Internal bleeding
  • Pulmonary embolism

Many of these issues are either missed or misdiagnosed due to poor communication amongst staff. If you or someone you know has sustained further financial or physical losses due to the possibility of emergency room medical malpractice, contact BisLaw today.

Sepsis Medical Malpractice

Sepsis is a serious and life-threatening condition when the body’s response to an infection damages its own tissues. Sepsis is the consequence of widespread inflammation (swelling) in the body. Inflammation and blood clotting during sepsis can reduce blood flow to vital organs of the body. This can lead to organ failure and death.

Sepsis can be caused due to emergency room medical malpractice. People who are at risk of sepsis can be the very young, very old, or pregnant women, people with pre-existing conditions, patients in the hospital, people with severe injuries or even patients with catheters such as IVs, urinary catheters and so on.

If you have been a patient in an emergency room or hospital setting and have suffered loss or damages due to a sepsis infection, you may be a victim of emergency room medical malpractice. Call the lawyers at Bislaw today to fight your sepsis emergency room medical malpractice claim.

Valuing Your Medical Malpractice Claim
