MEDICAL MALPRACTICE AND – NEGLIGENCE
Medical malpractice can be described as a negligent medical act that is a violation of the acceptable standards of treatment in the medical profession, or an omission of proper medical care. It occurs when a medical professional’s conduct do not meet the accepted standards of practice.

- incorrect or errors in diagnosis,
- treatment or management of health- and medical conditions,
