What constitutes malpractice?

Medical malpractice is malpractice by a professional. It’s a professional negligence. That means a physician, a surgeon, a hospital doing something that they should not have done or not doing something they should have done. Medical malpractice means that the doctor disobey that stop sign, when at red light, didn’t do what he or she should have done. Not only doctors, it could be nurses, it could be a physician’s assistant. It could happen in a nursing home. It could happen any place. All that means is that professional, who’s not acting in accordance with the proper standards. How do we prove this? We look at the medical records, we look at the hospital records, we consult with the proper specialists who are going to give us their honest opinions and tell us what was done wrong, why it was done wrong and what the consequences were.
