What is Medical and Clinical Negligence?

Medical treatment does not come with a guarantee and some errors or complications are unavoidable risks of treatment and not necessarily negligent.

Clinical Negligence describes a medical accident where a patient has been harmed because of an avoidable complication and the patient has not received the proper standard of care. A mistake does not always mean negligence.

Clinical negligence can occur:-

  • During surgery;
  • Prescribing the wrong drug or dosage;
  • Diagnosing incorrectly;
  • Failing to provide the necessary treatment or treating inappropriately;
  • Failing to obtain consent/agreement to the treatment recommended;
  • Failing to warn of the of the risks involved in treatment.
