What is medical malpractice?
Doctors, nurses, and hospital administrators all have duties and responsibilities to the patients they help. In particular, these medical professionals are legally obligated to meet certain standards when it comes to medical care. For doctors and nurses, this means making well-informed and reasonable choices about treatment and administering those treatments properly. For administrators, this means establishing safe policies and facilities. Failure to meet these standards may lead to an injury, which is the basis of medical malpractice litigation.
