Infectious Disease Medical Malpractice Cases



Infectious Disease Medical Malpractice Cases


The way to handle infection cases is very interesting. If you can show the operation was not indicated, then any complication from that unnecessary operation is a negligent act. Secondly, was the patient at higher risk for the operation? Were prophylactic antibiotics not given prior to, during and after surgery? Was the patient not immediately and properly diagnosed and treated? In most large cities and/or teaching centers, there are specialists who do practically nothing else but consult and treat infections. Were there infections on or in the patient's body at the time of an elective operation? If so, the surgery should have been postponed.
