What Clinical Negligence Have You Suffered In Harrogate?
Healthcare is hugely important to all of us, and when we are unwell, require surgery, are having a baby or when we have an elderly relative in care, we rely heavily on the skills and advice we receive. However, when things go wrong we are left with a situation that can be distressing and sometimes life-changing. Healthcare professionals have a duty of care to their patients and clinical negligence is the result when this is breached.
The results of clinical negligence can be very damaging, and the sad reality is that these cases are more common than you realise. It is true that honest mistakes can often be made, but also the standard of some care is very poor or is careless and inattentive, so there is usually a root cause that means someone is in error.
Clinical negligence can include a wide variety of incidents and patterns of care, but is generally classed as:
- Injuries to a baby during the childbirth process
- Delayed or inappropriate treatment (sometimes over a period of time)
- Diagnosing the wrong treatment, surgery or medicine
- Errors during surgery
