Who counts as being a medical professional?

Not all patients in Maryland receive the care and professionalism they deserve from the doctors and nurses attending them. At best, this can be frustrating as it can increase the time needed for a diagnosis and slow down the healing process. At worst, it can lead to serious and permanent complications or even death. As such, medical malpractice should never be tolerated. Reporting those responsible is often the best way to improve your own situation and prevent others from being similarly harmed in the future.

Of course, malpractice does not only happen in hospitals. There are many health-related practitioners who could cause you harm if they do not do their job correctly. As this article on malpractice explains, they include chiropractors, therapists and even psychologists. The key factors are that you have been harmed in some way as a result of the practitioner breaching their duty. If this has occurred, they may be guilty of negligence.

Furthermore, organizations and centers responsible for hiring the physician in question could also be liable. As these professionals work in such a vital sector, their mistakes are taken very seriously. Many standards and safeguards are in place to help prevent these mistakes causing harm to patients, but sadly it is not always enough.

If you have experienced doctor errors or malpractice in any form, you might benefit from the advice of an attorney. He or she can offer guidance on what to do next and may be able to suggest the best course of action to take. Furthermore, your attorney might be able to support you if you decide to take legal action against those responsible for your mistreatment.
