Should hospitals be held liable for technology credentialing ?

Like in many facets of life, technology has been incorporated to ensure that we have an easier time completing tasks and producing more without the prospect of human error marring what we develop. For as much as technology has become a part of major surgeries, complications can still occur if a physician operator makes mistakes. In these instances, should a medical device maker be held liable?

How equipment issues can lead to medical malpractice

Medical malpractice cases are commonly based on a physician’s failure to use reasonable care when diagnosing or treating a patient. When you think of malpractice, it is common to consider events where surgical tools are left inside a patient’s body or events where a patient is left unattended for extended amounts of time. Of course, these are the incidents that grab headlines, but they are not the only instances of medical negligence that can harm a patient.

Why a doctor's duty is important

To many medical malpractice patients, the main point of such a case may be obtain compensation for what went wrong in one’s treatment or procedure. Indeed, monetary compensation is the common endgame for medical malpractice cases; but before receiving any money, there are certain legal elements that must be satisfied.
