What is medical malpractice?

Medical Malpractice is substandard medical care that harms the patient.

In order to commit malpractice, a healthcare provider must have done something a reasonably careful physician wouldn’t have done or must fail to do something that a reasonably careful physician would have done. It is important to note that just because there has been a bad outcome that doesn't necessarily mean its medical malpractice.
