Common Types of Kaiser Permanente Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is very common because the practice of medicine is complex, and there are many opportunities for things to go wrong. The medical system is underfunded and over-worked and Kaiser Permanente is no exception. The pressure on doctors to make quick decisions and see a high patient volume can lead to mistakes. However, some doctors are incompetent or unethical and will hurt their patients, while others can be careless. Here are some common medical malpractice examples:

Misdiagnosis. Misdiagnosis is a very real and serious problem in the medical field. It can have devastating consequences for patients, both in terms of their health and their finances. Misdiagnosis can occur for a variety of reasons, including incorrect or incomplete diagnosis, failure to properly communicate the diagnosis to the patient, or simply incorrect information. Whatever the cause, misdiagnosis can have serious consequences and should be avoided at all costs.

Surgical Errors. Surgical errors are unfortunately a common occurrence in the medical field. They can happen for a variety of reasons, ranging from simple human error to more complex issues like equipment failure. Surgical errors can have serious consequences for patients, including pain, suffering, and even death.

Birth Injuries. The most common type of birth injury is bruising or swelling, which can happen when the baby is forced through the birth canal. More serious birth injuries can include fractures, nerve damage, and head or spinal cord injuries.

Defective Equipment. When defective medical equipment is used, patients' lives are put at risk. In some cases, the equipment may not work properly, which can lead to serious complications. In other cases, the equipment may be faulty, which can cause injuries or even death.
