My story is I had a medication error & a lab needed to be ordered. I accidentally omitting without transferring the orders on the patient medication admission orders so this patient would not get it but of course the DR. or NP never picked it up. So the Department of Health did a stipulation & order with me for neglect, Here is the kicker my employer @ the time used there lawyer & paid it. Not knowing any better & the lawyer settled without giving me options. Here is another kicker I never had lawyer when I get interviewed by the health department & to write up a statement. I was never offered to get one. So to me I am correct I pretty much can flush my license in the toilet cause I did n't get a chance to fight?
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional's negligence causes injury to a patient. Incorrect actions and inaction can both be forms of negligence.
