In America, preventable hospital errors cause the death of thousands of Americans each year. Injuries caused by health care providers and doctors cause hundreds of thousands of patients to suffer each year as well. Given the responsibility entrusted by society, most medical professionals and doctors admirably live up to the responsibility given to them. Sometimes, though, negligence can lead to horrific results. When they fail to do so, they commit medical malpractice if it is due to negligence. These injuries can be severe; brain injury, amputation, and spinal cord injury can result from medical malpractice. Based on how a similarly qualified doctor would have reacted in the same circumstances, the standard of care holds that the doctor act in a reasonably skillful and careful manner.
