Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional or facility acts in a negligent manner when providing service to a patient. Malpractice can occur in many ways and is not just limited to the actions of a doctor. Anytime a patient is injured while under the care of a medical professional or within a medical establishment, it may entail medical malpractice.

Some of the most common forms of malpractice include:

• Misdiagnosis and failure to treat
• Over treatment of a condition that causes harm
• Surgical errors
• Prescription errors
• Bed sores when in a medical facility

Of course, these are not the only conditions that result when malpractice occurs.
