Avoid Becoming a Medical Malpractice Victim

Every medical procedure carries an element of risk, and there is no guarantee of a positive outcome. But in some cases, a patient suffers injuries or even death because of a doctor’s mistake.

The best way to avoid medical malpractice is to take an active role in your own medical care. Before your doctors visit, write out a list of all the medications you are taking, and hand it to your doctor. Bring someone with you to your doctor’s appointment to be your second set of ears. Ask your doctors when test results are going to come back. And follow up for them! Also, don’t be afraid to go for a second opinion. And if you feel the doctor is rushing you at your appointment, then it’s time to go find another doctor.
