Lack of Medical Ethics

The medical field is a constantly changing line of work. Doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals may be required to make last minute decisions or take unusual steps to treat their patients, but while doing this, they are also required to make sure that all things are done in the patient’s best interest. When a medical professional fails to adhere to the Hippocratic Oath and disregards their promise to protect their patients to the best of their abilities, they may compromise the lives of innocent people.

If you or someone you love has suffered because of the unethical decisions or actions of a medical professional, you may be able to take legal action against the responsible party.

Examples of Unethical Treatment

Anytime a medical professional acts inappropriately towards a patient or fails to adequately monitor his or her care, they may be exhibiting a lack of medical ethics. Some of the most common examples of this type of activity include:

  • Neglect
  • Physical abuse
  • Mental or emotional abuse
  • Failure to communicate
  • Running unnecessary tests
  • Failing to provide pain treatment options
  • Disregarding possible treatments that may be more desirable to patients
  • Sexual abuse
