How can healthcare providers minimize their risk of a medical malpractice lawsuit?

By following strict patient safety measures, encouraging open communication with patients, and meticulously documenting medical care and treatment, healthcare practitioners can reduce their chance of being sued for medical negligence.

Medical Negligence & Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

Healthcare providers can also upgrade their risk management procedures, medical malpractice insurance policies, and safety protocols. Patient safety protocols refer to the procedures, guidelines, and checklists that healthcare providers use to prevent medical errors, adverse events, and infections.

Additionally, healthcare professionals should promote open communication with patients and their families to develop trust and understanding. Another essential component is timely and precise documentation, which provides evidence of medical care and aids in error detection.

Medical Negligence Case Gorakhpur Hospital Tragedy

In the Baba Raghav Das Medical College in Gorakhpur, India, in 2017, a lack of oxygen delivery was responsible for the deaths of over sixty children. The oxygen supplier reportedly claimed that the hospital had not paid them for several months, which led to the facility’s oxygen supply being cut off.

The unfortunate event aroused countrywide indignation, which prompted the establishment of an investigative committee by the government of UP to inspect the occurrence.

The committee unanimously agreed that the hospital was responsible for medical negligence as well as a lack of preparedness, and they suggested taking action against numerous hospital officials.
