To quote a statistic:
"Every year medical malpractice cases in America’s most advanced cities like New York, Chicago and California, cause at least 27,000 injuries and 7,000 deaths."
There is a deeply rooted gut feeling that one should trust one's doctor and physician to keep one's best interest in mind while doing his or her job. However, when that is not the case, it is both culturally shocking as well as disappointing on a personal level. A event such as that triggers a range of new fears as the patient takes an increasingly doubtful stance towards medical attention – in general.
In order to fight medical malpractice, it is necessary to take a deeper look into what it's really all about.
Medical malpractice is the failure of a health care provider to supply the necessary exercise needed by a patient – and we call it "substandard treatment." Simply put, substandard treatment is the act of a medical practitioner that damages the patient's physique and/or economy, instead of helping solve the provided problem.
There are five most common types of medical malpractice consequences, and the following is a list of those:
pain and suffering
disability or deformity
emotional stress and mental fatigue
and finally: death.
There are two basic reasons behind the increase of medical malpractice cases.
The first, foremost and strongest reason behind medical malpractice would be cutting corners around the expenses behind the needed treatments – and these are prominent both in developed and developing countries as well as the third world.
Recent research has proven that the second reason is also economy-seeded: the needs of the health care's economy is growing faster than the surrounding, global economy can supply for.
Adjusting the economy to suite the medical inflation would majorly decrease the level of medical malpractice. Another measure which can be taken to prevent said malpractice would be maximizing the rates of medical malpractice penalties, such as pronouncing it a felony and thus arresting a doctor for malpractice. Furthermore, if the malpractice concluded the patient's life, the doctor ought to be treated as the patient's murderer in front of trial for leading to such an event.
A commitment to such high standards can de facto do wonders for stopping medical malpractice in its tacks, but can also have negative side effects such as the increase of the amount of medical neglect.
