Can patients in Singapore file a lawsuit for psychological harm brought on by a medical procedure?

If emotional anguish is a reasonably foreseeable result of the healthcare provider’s carelessness, patients in Singapore may file a lawsuit for it.

Medical Negligence & Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

The patient must be able to demonstrate that the distress was brought on by the healthcare provider’s negligence and was not just a side effect of the treatment or condition. Anxiety, sadness, and PTSD are a few examples of emotional discomfort that may be deemed compensable in legal terms.

Medical Negligence Highlight Errors In Anesthesia

Errors in anesthesia occur when a medical professional fails to provide anesthetic to a patient in the correct manner, putting the patient at risk of injury during surgery or other medical procedures. Errors in anesthesia can be caused by a variety of circumstances, including a failure to adequately monitor the patient, a failure to consider the patient’s medical history and current medicines, or a miscommunication between the anesthesia provider and the surgical team. 

Errors in administering anesthetic can result in injuries ranging from moderate to severe, with potential consequences including long-term bodily and mental suffering, major financial losses, and a reduction in quality of life.
