Medical malpractice is mostly concerned with the mistakes that doctors make when performing a medical procedure. If an average doctor might have reasonably made the mistake, that is, if the procedure was very difficult, then the doctor may not be liable for the mistake. However, if the procedure was very easy, such as the laceration of a boil, or if the error was gross, such as performing an operation on the wrong body part, then the doctor will be responsible for the resulting injury.

Now, there's preventative medicine for doctors. In The Malpractice Cure, A physician can be sued because he didn't call a patient who skipped a follow-up. Some doctors end up in court because their notes differ slightly from a nurse's report. Doctors can be sued for forgetting to remind patients to return if their symptoms persist. It's the simplest errors that can land a doctor in court, and McCarthy explains the most common oversights.
Unlike other books for doctors that concentrate solely on safe medical care, The Malpractice Cure explains the habits of doctors and their office policies that all but the most litigious patients ignore. And, if the worst happens, readers will find a special section on what to do when you get sued. Whether they work in hospitals or private offices, and no matter their medical specialty, doctors have much to learn from clients of Mr. McCarthy who should have known better.
