Baltimore Medical Malpractice Lawyer Medical malpractice is a term that describes the negligence of a medical professional or medical facility (doctor, nurse, medical technician, psychiatrist, hospital or health-care facility) to exercise adequate care, skill or diligence in performing a duty where an injury or death is the result. The determination of whether duty of care is met depends on the standard of care for that professional or facility. In other words, the applicable duty arises from the accepted practices of other professionals or facilities in the same field and geographical area. In the case of a doctor who is a medical specialist, the standard of care is determined by the standard of good medical practice in that specialty within the community. For someone who suffers a physical, emotional or mental injury or even death at the hands of the doctor, nurse, or other hospital worker during a treatment, Medical Malpractice or Medical Negligence provides an opportunity to receive compensation for these injuries.
