Medical Malpractice is defined as the failure of a medical professional (be it a Physician, Surgeon or Nurse) to provide care that meets the “good and accepted standards of medical care existing in the community.” Failing to provide care commensurate with these standards means that the medical professional has “deviated from good and accepted standards” and thus committed medical malpractice. It is important to bear in mind that not every bad or less than desirable outcome is necessarily the result of malpractice. There are occasions when the medical practitioner has seemingly done everything correctly and still the patient does not do as well as expected or hoped. Similarly, there are times when medical malpractice can be clearly demonstrated and yet no injury attributable to that malpractice can be identified.
