When a doctor, surgeon or other medical professional is careless with a patient is negligent in his or her care, the consequences can be significant. Often, surgeons will leave a surgery early in an effort to get somewhere else on time, leaving students or assistants to close the wound and finish the surgery. Doctors in a hurry or who are distracted may fail to correctly read test results, and hospitals put profits over patient care. When mistakes are made and medical professionals exhibit negligence and carelessness, a patient is the one who will suffer as a result. Catastrophic injuries and even wrongful death can result from medical malpractice.
