Facts - Books - News U.S. Facts Of Law:
Malpractice occurs when a professional fails to
follow generally accepted standards of the
profession. It is most commonly thought of
happening with respect to medical professionals,
investment professionals, accountants and attorneys.
When a professional commits malpractice it results
in a violation of trust and responsibility the
professional has to his or her client.
When a medical professional commits malpractice,
the health or even the life of the practitioner's
patient may become at risk. The medical
profession and their insurers argue that the high
costs of medical malpractice lawsuits in an ever
complicated profession are driving up medical
expenses for everyone. Lawyers involved with
medical malpractice cases, on the other hand, argue
that patients deserve to be made whole again after
the potential devastating results of malpractice by
a medical professional. They also claim that
malpractice accountability has helped to make the
U.S. healthcare system the best in the world.
While malpractice lawsuits against physicians and
hospitals may result in more comprehensive
healthcare, it also results in physicians ordering
additional tests and procedures for legal reasons
rather than for clinical reasons.
Occasionally, these extra tests turn out to be
useful but much more often they are just an extra,
unnecessary expense to the patient. Estimates
of the additional costs these unnecessary tests and
procedures cost patients and their insurance
companies approach $100 Billion annually. Some
argue that this additional cost is worth spending to
have the world's best healthcare system.
