In the province of PEI, and across Canada, it is the duty of all medical professionals to provide proper care to their patients. Still, physicians can be negligent and fail to provide the acceptable level of medical care. This negligence is medical malpractice and can leave patients injured, seriously ill, and can even cause death.
Dental malpractice and medical malpractice in PEI can involve something as simple as a health care provider prescribing the wrong medication or treatment, or a more complex issue such as a surgeon performing the wrong surgery on a patient. In any case, malpractice is becoming an issue that many residents of Prince Edward Island must face every year.
Medical Malpractice in Canada
