Negligence and Malpratice in Medicine
Negligence and malpractice in medicine refers to the professional misconduct of a healthcare provider that results in harm to an individual. This can range from not doing enough to properly diagnose or treat a patient, giving substandard care, or making false claims about their abilities. Share this paper
The Uniform Medical Billing Code (UMB) states that negligent acts leading to injury amount to medical negligence if they create a substantial risk of serious physical harm. Drawing up a treatment plan without fully understanding your patient's condition is considered negligence, as is prescribing medication for conditions you don't actually know about.
