Cardiac Cases

As healthcare costs exponentially rise and medical professionals safeguard themselves with so-called “defensive medicine,” it is becoming even more crucial to shed light on the patterns of increased liability claims and malpractice risks. Tragically, the field of cardiology produce the highest rates of these components.

In recent years, practicing defensive medicine has shown to prioritize doctors’ legal safety and medical reputation over what really matters: The patient’s health and well-being. Unnecessary diagnostic testing, expensive medical bills, and increased health risks for patients are all products of defensive medicine.

The trend implies that medical professionals seem to focus on protecting themselves, which may lead to medical negligence, instead of properly treating the patients promptly following standard of procedure.

For instance, alleged cardiac errors stemming from defensive medicine include anesthesia-related mistakes, violating patient’s rights and privacy, improper surgical treatment, monitoring failure, diagnostic error, and failure to effectively practice honest communication between the patient and doctor.

Doctors can even postpone or choose not to perform certain high-risk surgeries that may benefit the patient in fear of being accused of medical malpractice, but that shouldn’t be the case. Medical litigation claims are only necessary if doctors have evidently shown clear negligence or improper treatment. They should not let fear of litigation be a deciding factor of how to properly treat their patients because it is widely known that cardiac surgeries are high-risk procedures.
