    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

    Due to Covid, hospitals, doctors and specialists in Pennsylvania are treating increased numbers of Covid patients and patients with other medical conditions, like stroke or heart attack patients. Given the strain on the medical care industry, mistakes have occurred in hospitals, emergency care centers, and medical doctor offices.

    Medical Malpractice in Treating Non-Covid Patients

    Patients who would usually seek care at an emergency room are now seeking treatment from their family doctors or specialists. This is due to fear of contact with coronavirus patients or being turned away from a hospital due to lack of hospital beds. Some patients may be released from a hospital due to misdiagnosis of a major condition. Patients in these situations often suffer catastrophic events. Emergency care including surgery may be necessary for patients suffering a stroke, heart attack or pulmonary embolism. Failure to get proper care often results in death or serious, permanent disability.

    If you or a loved one believe you received negligent medical care or treatment due to coronavirus, contact us today. It’s critical to seek help from a medical malpractice law firm to identify the legal and medical issues as soon as possible.

    Pennsylvania Medical Malpractice Law

    Under Pennsylvania law, medical professionals, including hospitals, doctors, specialists, nurses, etc., must provide medical care which meets the accepted standard of care for the given specialty.

    When a medical professional is negligent in providing treatment, and an injury occurs as a result, Pennsylvania’s Medical Care Availability and Reduction of Error Act (MCARE ACT) provides that the professional is responsible for any damages caused by that negligent conduct.

    Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, hospital or other medical provider does not give the proper care or treatment or where that treatment is inadequate, and an injury results.

    Examples of Medical Malpractice Cases

    Medical malpractice cases vary greatly in terms of injuries and causes. In many medical malpractice claims, common factors are present.

    Take a look at some examples of medical malpractice:

    • Failure to take a full medical history
    • Failure to perform a complete medical exam
    • Error in diagnosing a condition such as stroke, heart attack, etc.
    • Error in providing the proper or timely treatment or surgery
    • Carelessness in sanitation or infection prevention
    • Carelessness in prescribing or administering medications
    • Carelessness in providing nursing care
    • Administrative errors which cause delay in treatment
    • Breach of hospital procedures

    Types of Medical Malpractice

    Most medical malpractice cases fall under one of three common types: failure to diagnose, improper treatment, and failure to warn a patient of known risks. Regardless of the type, you should not hesitate to contact a trusted medical malpractice attorney from Morris Wilson Knepp Jacquette, P.C. We will work tirelessly to build the possible case on your behalf and pursue the justice you deserve.

    • Failure to diagnose: If another doctor would have discovered a patient’s illness or made a different diagnosis which would have led to a better or more positive outcome than the one achieved, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice case.
    • Improper treatment: This occurs when a doctor treats a patient in a way that no other competent doctor would.
    • Failure to warn a patient of known risks: Patients should be warned of potential risks associated with a treatment or procedure – should a doctor fail to uphold their duty and inform a patient of the risks, the doctor may be held liable for medical malpractice.
