San Jose Medical Errors Attorney
A medical error may constitute various different mistakes on the part of a health care professional, such as a doctor, nurse, surgeon, anesthesiologist, etc. An error of this kind essentially results in that professional providing improper care or treatment that conflicts with medical standards of the time. For example, a doctor making a mistake in the diagnosis of a patient may
misdiagnose his or her condition and therefore prescribe the wrong medication. A surgeon may accidentally operate on the wrong side of the body or slip and perforate an organ or artery. A nurse may be negligent in the postoperative care of a patient, causing preventable infection or injury.

Medical Error Statistics
A study by the Institute of Medicine estimates that 44,000 to 98,000 patients lose their lives every year due to medical errors in hospitals alone. These people will lose their lives not as a result of the medical conditions for which they sought treatment but due to the substandard care they received at a hospital.
