CREATING CONFIDENCE, BUILDING TRUST.
Malpractice Coverage is important! What is Medical Malpractice?
Statistics show that approximately 195,000 people are killed every year by medical errors in the United States.
Nearly 7 million patient-safety incidents occur yearly among approximately 18.5 million hospitalizations in the Medicare population alone.
Hospital costs associated with such medical errors are estimated at $324 million per year.
There are between 15,000 and 19,000 malpractice suits brought against doctors each year.
Accidents and complications happen, our goal is to ensure that all doctors on Top10MD have current medical malpractice coverage in place.
Medical malpractice is an act or omission by a physician during treatment of a patient that deviates from the accepted standards of care in the medical community and causes injury to a patient. This is a particular subset of tort law. Tort meaning “wrong” is a body of law that creates and provides remedies for civil wrongs that are distinct from contractual duties or criminal wrongs. Falling short of the standard of care is defined as “negligence.”
Today, more than ever it’s imperative to check your doctor’s credentials. Top10MD’s independent third-party Credentialist performs this for you- yearly!
