Video Transcription

The kinds of mistakes that can result in medical malpractice claims, vary by setting, whether it’s in a hospital or in a doctor’s office. In a hospital, they often can be busy, there can often be delays in the diagnosis which can be disastrous, they can be fatal. There can be shortcuts taken by way of failure to take necessary tests. On the other hand in that sometimes there are test given that are unnecessary and can be damaging to the client, so in a hospital setting you have the failure to diagnose the misdiagnosis as well as a doctor or a nurse or some other health care provider, simply not living up to the standard that he or she is suppose to live up to as a license physician.

Those same types of problems can exist in a doctor’s office. You just have to watch out for the treatment provided to the client at every step along the way to make sure that the physician, whether he or she is a specialist or a generalist, whether he or she has lived up to the standard of care.
