Many medical conditions are impossible to detect, even to an experienced physician. However, if a doctor fails to diagnose a condition that could have been detected by another medical professional, it may be a case of medical malpractice. This may be a result of inadequate examination, failure to conduct appropriate tests or failure to connect the dots between test results or symptoms.
If a medical professional administers improper care to a patient, they are accountable for those actions. This can range from administering a treatment that results in injury or harm to a patient to mistakes during surgery, and even inappropriate prescriptions. Any act of known negligence on the part of your medical provider may be considered medical malpractice.
Similar to a failure to diagnose, this situation involves a doctor's failure to notify you of all known risks involved with a given prescription, procedure, test or surgical recommendation. Another term for it is negligent nondisclosure.
