All medical practitioners have a legal duty of care towards their patients. If a medical practitioner fails in their duty of care, by providing substandard care which results in the patient becoming harmed, this is defined as medical negligence, also known as clinical negligence. An act of medical negligence could be a medical mistake causing harm, a doctor misdiagnosing a patient’s condition so it worsens over time, or prescribing the wrong dosage of medication allowing the patient to suffer side effects. For a medical negligence claim to be valid it must result in the patient becoming injured, ill, or have an existing medical condition made worse.

Maternity negligence may include misdiagnosis or ill-treatment of pregnancy-related diabetes, delay in pre-eclampsia diagnosis and not diagnosing a breach delivery.

Hospitals could provide us with essential care when we need to see a specialist or in emergency situations. However with staff shortages and those staff who are available working long shifts and more days than necessary it is possible to see why mistakes could potentially be made. Examples of clinical negligence in hospitals may include a specialist misdiagnosing a medical condition, a patient being given the wrong dosage of medication or mistakes during surgery. However in order to make a successful claim it must be proven that the negligence suffered caused a condition to worsen or caused harm in some way. In the tragic circumstances that your next of kin or relative suffered a medical negligence death at a hospital, you could possibly be able to claim compensation on their behalf.

If a beloved relative becomes too ill or infirm to look after themselves, we trust care homes and nursing homes to provide them with the highest standard of care, in Sheffield and elsewhere.

This could include safeguarding procedures to ensure that residents are not abused or neglected, procedures to make sure residents receive and take the correct dosage of medication and to have safety equipment so that patients are not at risk if falling. Care home workers also have processes they must follow if they have to lift patients, to ensure they don’t drop or injure them.
