Types of medical malpractice
Doctors, nurses, surgeons, radiologists and all other medical professionals may be sued for medical malpractice in North Carolina if they were careless and injured a patient. Here are some examples of medical negligence that can occur in hospitals and doctors’ offices throughout the state:
- Surgical mistakes: Surgeons who are overworked, exhausted or simply careless may leave instruments inside a patient’s body, operate on the wrong part of the body or operate on the wrong patient entirely.
- Misdiagnosis: A doctor is expected to correctly identify and diagnose medical conditions. A misdiagnosis can cause a patient to suffer unnecessary harm.
- Failure to diagnose: If a physician fails to diagnose a condition that a reasonably prudent member of the medical community would have detected, the physician may face a malpractice lawsuit.
- Birth errors: Delivery doctors who are careless with forceps can bruise the newborn. A reckless delivery can lead to Erb’s palsy, cerebral palsy or even a wrongful death.
