Who Can Be Held Responsible for Medical Malpractice?

Who Can Be Held Responsible for Medical Malpractice?

Whether you’re going to the doctor to get treated for an illness or injury, or you’re checking into a hospital for a surgical procedure, you expect to get treatment that will improve your health and help you feel better.

Healthcare professionals are sworn to do no harm to their patients, but negligence and carelessness can lead to serious mistakes that can have serious consequences for patients like you. If you or someone you love was harmed by a doctor, surgeon, or other medical provider in Oklahoma, you may be a victim of medical malpractice.

3 Parties That Are Often Held Liable for Medical Mistakes

Multiple parties can be held responsible for medical malpractice, including:

  1. Individual healthcare professionals—Doctors, surgeons, radiologists, anesthesiologists, nurses, and other medical providers can make potentially life-threatening mistakes due to negligence. When that happens, they can be held liable for the injuries or illnesses that their patients suffer.
  2. Hospitals and clinics—Entire hospitals or clinics can also be held liable for patient injuries, especially when they fail to provide safe and sanitary environments or they fail to properly train their medical staff.
  3. Pharmacists—Whether they work at a hospital, a drug store, or a supermarket, pharmacists are supposed to give patients the correct medications and dosages. They’re also supposed to answer patients’ questions and provide guidance. When their carelessness harms patients, their mistakes may constitute malpractice.
