A simple definition of medical malpractice is when a health-care professional does not do his or her job, and somebody gets hurt as a result. But it's more than a mistake. The professional had to have been negligent or failed to provide the proper standard of care.
One example is when a hospital staff member gives someone too much of a medication. Another is a doctor who performs the wrong procedure on a patient. Or a surgeon who cuts into the wrong part of the body. Another example is a doctor who fails to diagnose cancer when the signs and test results are clear.
It may also be a case of medical malpractice when the resident of a nursing home or another health-care facility is not fed regularly or is the victim of an assault.
