How do medical malpractice claims get handled in Singapore?

In Singapore, civil courts adjudicate cases of medical malpractice. Patients have the right to sue healthcare providers for damages for any loss or injury brought on by their negligence.

Medical Negligence & Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

The patient must prove that the healthcare professional was negligent and that their conduct resulted in the patient’s harm or injury. The judge will take into account things like whether the medical professional behaved in accordance with the accepted standard of care and whether the patient was fully apprised of the hazards involved.

Medical Negligence Highlight Errors In Surgery

Errors in Surgery When a mistake is made during surgery, such as amputating the incorrect limb or removing the wrong organ, the patient is left with a lifelong harm or handicap as a result.

Errors in surgery can be brought about by a number of different things, including a breakdown in communication between the members of the surgical team, an absence of adequate planning and preparation, or a failure to adequately monitor the patient while the treatment is being performed.

Errors that occur during surgery can have serious repercussions, including but not limited to long-term physical and mental suffering, major financial expenditures, and a reduction in the patient’s quality of life.
