What constitutes improper treatment?
Because medicine is such a complex field, it may be hard to determine what actions (or inactions) constitute improper treatment. By definition, improper treatment occurs when a medical worker incorrectly handles a patient’s condition or administers the incorrect treatment. Improper treatment can have a number of adverse side effects, such as unnecessary and dangerous surgeries, the administration of unnecessary (and therefore potentially dangerous) drugs, and a delay in treatment.
Some unfortunately common examples of improper treatment include:
- Wrong site surgery
- Performing unnecessary and invasive operations
- Prescribing the incorrect medication
- Failure to monitor the patient adequately during surgery
- Leaving foreign objects in the body cavity during an operation
- Not following hospital-set protocol
- Not administering pre- and post-operative care
All of the above errors can have very dangerous effects on a patient. To speak with an attorney about your improper treatment case, call the New Jersey improper treatment lawyers of Levinson Axelrod, P.A. today at 800-346-5529.
