What is medical negligence? Medical negligence occurs when a doctor or other medical care provider does not provide the same level of care as the average doctor would under the same circumstances. In essence, medical negligence is when a medical provider doesn’t behave reasonably and someone gets hurt. Medical malpractice applies not only to doctors but also to other medical providers such as nurses, dentists, all of them who have a duty to behave reasonably in providing care to patients. Some examples of medical negligence are misdiagnosing a patient, giving the wrong dosage, or a mistake made during surgery.
