Regardless of where in Ontario you reside, be it Toronto or North Bay, when you enter a medical institution you have a right to expect a high standard of care from your physician. Doctors, nurses, midwives, and other medical professionals are expected to offer their patients excellent treatment throughout the care cycle, from intake to discharge. If a medical practitioner causes an injury by failing to act with a reasonable level of care at any point during your hospital stay, including diagnosis, testing, surgery, post-operation care, or medication distribution, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. These types of medical errors can have serious repercussions to patients’ health, including long-term disability or, in some cases, death. If you or a loved on living in the North Bay area has been injured by medical malpractice or negligence, you should contact a medical malpractice lawyer at Neinstein immediately.
In the Canadian healthcare system, physicians are protected from malpractice claims by the Canadian Medical Protective Agency (CMPA). This group hires top lawyers to defend doctors against both warranted and warranted lawsuits. The CMPA’s deep pockets make medical malpractice suits historically complex, expensive, and time-consuming to prosecute. While doctors absolutely have the right to defend themselves, it is the role of a medical malpractice lawyer to hold healthcare professionals accountable for any actions which may have injured a patient. Doctors have a responsibility to consider patients’ medical histories; to administer appropriate tests and to interpret the tests correctly; to make patients aware of their medical situation and of any risks associated with potential treatments; to answer patients’ worries and concerns; and to perform any surgical procedures in a safe, sanitary and responsible manner. These steps contribute to patients’ proper diagnosis and treatment, and can have a positive impact on chances of survival and recovery.
When physicians fail in their duties, however, patients’ lives are put at risk. When the worst occurs, a medical malpractice lawyer can help you assess your case against a nurse, doctor, midwife, or hospital to determine whether pursuing legal action is your best option.
