Few doctors or nurses deliberately set out to provide negligent and harmful care to their patients. Instead, most acts of medical malpractice occur because of one or more of the following factors:
- Lack of skill or experience: Medical professionals may hesitate to appear uneducated in front of their peers and/or patients. However, if a medical professional has not encountered a situation before or if he or she is unsure of his or her conclusions, failing to seek out experienced advice may constitute malpractice.
- Inattention/Lack of patience: A medical professional who rushes in diagnosing a patient or in performing a procedure is inviting mistakes to occur. A doctor or nurse’s speed in performing his or her tasks is often related to his or her experience: that is, one would expect a more experienced professional to perform “routine” tasks more quickly whereas a less-experienced professional may require more time. Regardless of the level of experience, professionals need to take an adequate amount of time to properly determine each patient’s needs and how to provide the appropriate treatment to the patient safely.
