Healthcare professionals in Ontario have an obligation to provide more than just a standard duty of care. The Canadian Medical Association’s Code of Ethics ‘is based on the fundamental principles and values of medical ethics, especially compassion, beneficence, non-maleficence, respect for persons, justice and accountability.’ Hence the tremendous level of trust and accountability we have in our medical professionals. Despite this high level of trust, mistakes and acts of negligence do occur. These events can be devastating and life altering for the patients involved.
Some of the most common medical malpractice areas are the following;
- Birth Injuries/Obstretic Malpractice
- Pre-natal testing errors (wrongful birth)
- Cerebral Palsy
- Misdiagnosis, Failure to Re-diagnose or Delayed Diagnosis
- Medication/Anesthesia Errors
- Surgical Errors
- Prescription Errors
- Negligent Care
- Substandard Care
- Wrongful death
