  1. Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Rhode Island Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, LTD. Doctors and other medical professionals must go through intensive training for many years in preparation for practicing their profession, and they are rewarded with high incomes, prestige, and the esteem and trust of the patients who rely on them to stay healthy. Practicing medicine comes with a high level of responsibility and the opportunity to serve others.  HOW DO WE DEFINE MEDICAL MALPRACTICE? People get sick and die every day, and it’s no one’s fault. In spite of doctors’ best efforts, applied with skill and diligence, there is never a guarantee of a happy ending. Just because an illness worsens or a patient dies does not mean there has been malpractice. Medical malpractice means that a doctor, hospital, or other healthcare professional has failed to meet the standard of care that would be delivered by any reasonably competent medical professional in the same area of specialization in the same, or similar, situation. This could be either an error of commission, for example surgically removing the

  2. wrong body part, or an error of omission, such as failing to order appropriate tests, given the presenting symptoms, and missing a diagnosis, resulting in the patient’s death. A physician or hospital that breaches this standard of care can, and should, be held liable for damages suffered by the patient and family.  TYPES OF MEDICAL ERRORS Some of the most common types of medical errors include:  Diagnostic errors, including misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose a disease, which then worsens.  Surgical errors, such as surgery performed on the wrong site, or leaving a foreign object in the body.  Anesthesia errors.  Medication errors, including wrong medication, wrong dosage, or administering a medication to the wrong patient.  Errors during childbirth that result in birth injuries.  WHY YOU NEED THE BEST MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LAWYER YOU CAN FIND : Medical malpractice cases are not easy.
