Health Ethics

Medical malpractice consists of negligence on the part of a healthcare professional, whether the person functions as a doctor, nurse, resident, or other caregiver in a medical environment. Negligence can occur when a healthcare provider doesn’t perform at a level considered standard for the industry or fails to perform at all. Either way, if the behavior or lack of action results in patient injury or death, the professional could become the subject of a medical malpractice claim. Situations occur where patients may not always receive the quality of care they expect or deserve. Read the following case study, as well as the perspectives of the plaintiff and defendant, and write a 2-3 page, double spaced essay that summarizes the scenario and identifies ways in which the doctor could have avoided a medical malpractice suit.
