Who can be found liable for medical malpractice?
While most people associate the term “medical malpractice” with physicians, they are not the only ones who can commit this offense. Nearly any negligent healthcare provider may be found guilty of malpractice. This includes nurses, pharmacists, orderlies, chiropractors, dentists, and so on. In addition to the people acting in these professions, entities such as hospitals and clinics can be the target of medical malpractice lawsuits.
