Medical Malpractice Lawyers Orangeville
If you have suffered an injury at an Orangeville-area medical facility, contact Neinstein’s medical malpractice lawyers today.
Have you or a member of your family suffered a personal injury as a result of medical malpractice in an Orangeville-area medical facility? Even within Ontario’s excellent healthcare system, medical errors and adverse medical events can and do take place. In fact, according to the 2004 Canadian Adverse Events Study nearly 72,000 adverse events per year occur in Ontario, resulting in thousands of deaths. However, only a fraction of these events are reported.
When a patient visits a hospital or doctor’s office, they are placing their complete trust in their medical practitioner. In turn, doctors, nurses, midwives, and all other medical professionals have a responsibility to treat patients with a reasonable standard of care. In treating a patient, a doctor should listen carefully to the problem; consult patient history; run appropriate tests and procedures; keep the patient fully apprised of their medical status, including notifying them of any material, special, or unusual risks associated with any necessary procedures; answer the patient’s questions and concerns; and perform all surgeries or operations in a safe, responsible, and sanitary manner.
If a medical practitioner fails to provide a reasonable standard of care at any point in the treatment process, the result may be medical malpractice. For instance, receiving an early, correct diagnosis can increase a patient’s treatment options, improve quality of life during treatment, and ultimately increase chances of survival. On the other hand, a delayed or improper diagnosis can cause irreparable damage to a person’s health, including long term mental or physical disability. If an improper diagnosis is compounded by the incorrect administration of medication, the results can be even more severe.
If you believe that you have been a victim of medical malpractice at any point of the care cycle, from diagnosis to post-operation monitoring, you should immediately contact the medical malpractice lawyers from Neinstein.
