What is medical negligence?
Generally speaking medical negligence is the failure to use reasonable care. Reasonable care on the part of a medical provider is that level of care, skill and treatment which, in light of all relevant surrounding circumstances, is recognized as acceptable and appropriate by health care providers. Negligence on the part of a physician, hospital or health care provider is doing something that a reasonably careful physician, hospital or health care provider would not do under like circumstances or failing to do something that a reasonably careful physician, hospital or health care provider would do under like circumstances.
