Medical mistakes happen and when they do, it can result in life-altering health issues or even death. Medical mistakes, also referred to as physician error or medical malpractice, can include medication errors, failure to monitor a patient, failure to obtain informed consent, failure to diagnose or treat a condition, or wrongful death as a result of a physician error.
