Medical personnel who fail to provide the expected level of care, leading to an injury, illness or death could potentially be held liable for medical malpractice. All medical personnel are required to have extensive education and training before they can treat, diagnose, prescribe or give advice to a patient. Their choices and decisions are measured against what another physician or medical professional would have done in the same situation.
