When a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider fails to use a proper and adequate level of care, due diligence, or skill, patient injuries can be a devastating result. While an individual is under a medical professional’s care, any medical negligence that takes place can lead to a case of medical malpractice.
The U.S. Department of Labor has set guidelines by which physicians, nurses, technicians, anesthesiologists, and other healthcare providers are expected to function in meeting specific protocols and standards of care. Every medical professional has a duty to make sure this obligation is met.
