When a medical professional's negligent actions cause injury or harm to a patient, it is considered medical malpractice. All healthcare providers are legally responsible for providing their patients with reasonably safe and proper medical treatment. When a medical professional acts negligently, he/she may be held liable for the death or injury of a patient.
Medical malpractice laws apply to all licensed medical professionals in the United States. These professionals include doctors, surgeons, nurses, dentists, chiropractors, pharmacists, anesthesiologists, technicians, cardiologists, pediatricians, pathologists, oncologists, dermatologists, psychologists, hospital workers, nursing homes staff etc.
