“Medical malpractice” means that a health care provider – for example, a doctor, nurse, technician or pharmacist – has failed to properly treat a patient, resulting in the patient’s injury or death. In a typical medical malpractice case, there are two critical issues that must be proven: (1) that the health care provider failed to act in accordance with “standard of care” and (2) that this failure to meet the standard of care caused the patient’s injury or death. The “standard of care” is generally defined as what a reasonably qualified doctor, nurse or other health care provider is required to do under similar circumstances involving the treatment of a patient.
