When you or a loved one is sick, the first thing you do is take them to a doctor. You do this because you rely on a doctor’s professional care. Doctors, nurses, medical staff, hospitals, and hospital staff are all working under a certain standard of care. This standard of care is beyond that of someone who is of a different profession and someone who doesn’t carry a license. If you are seeing a doctor and they are not using this standard of care or if they are not properly licensed and you suffer an injury or even worse someone dies due to this negligence then you have the right to file a medical malpractice case.
Medical malpractice is when a doctor, nurse, medical or hospital staff does not conduct proper standard of care which then causes harm to the patient, fails to diagnose a condition, does not get consent for procedures, fails to perform certain duties that go with a standard of care, breach’s contract of confidentiality, and other actions or behaviors that harm the patience and are deemed negligent. Medical Malpractice insurance is not a federally mandated nor does the state of California require doctors and medical staff to malpractice insurance. However, this should not stop you from seeking help from our Sherman Oaks medical malpractice attorney at Mancini & Associates.
You may have heard this shocking news coverage of the 29-year-old who was raped and impregnated while she was in a coma. The woman was said to be in a facility with constant change over which is why no one would have noticed that she was pregnant. There were no 24 hours camera or videos to see who interacted with the coma patient. But this isn’t the first time a woman was impregnated while she was in a coma. There is a 1985 story where another 29-year-old woman was impregnated while in a coma. Of course in these extreme cases, these women were not treated with a standard of care expected. Rape is not a standard of care for these defenseless women.
