When a medical professional such as a doctor causes harm to a patient, either through an act of negligence or one of omission, this is medical malpractice. Negligence can include errors in diagnosis as well as treatment or management. Medical malpractice cases can be pursued against a doctor whose actions are not within the range of accepted practices, against a hospital which fails to properly provide medication or other personal or medical care, or against government agencies which administer medical facilities.
