Medical care providers hold a great deal of power and responsibility in their job duties and are held to a high standard of care. They are required to have an extensive amount of education and training before being allowed to treat, diagnose, prescribe medication, or give medical advice. The diagnoses and procedures that they provide should improve the health condition of their patients rather than harming it. Every decision that they make is measured against what another medical professional would have done in the same situation. Unfortunately, when they fail to meet this expected standard of care, their patients may end up suffering serious injury.
