As many as 24,000 patients die each year at hospitals due to “adverse events”, and 87,000 patients experience some sort of “adverse event” that leaves them sick or injured. An adverse event is a doctor’s code word for medical malpractice and is a common occurrence for many Nova Scotians and Canadians nationwide. A recent report by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) found that almost a quarter of Canadians will experience some form of medical malpractice in their lifetime. The worst part of it is that 99% of Canadians, who experience dental malpractice or medical malpractice and suffer physical and emotional distress, never receive compensation, due to lack of legal awareness and resources.

Healthcare in Nova Scotia is ranked among the best in Canadian provinces and is often above the national average within many sectors. Nova Scotia holds a better population to doctor ratio than the national average, although it faces issues with retaining valuable doctors after the duration of their in-class medical residency. As a whole, Nova Scotia faces the same issues as much of the rest of Canada, with an overworked and limited medical workforce. As a result of this increased workload, doctors begin to make mistakes that can be costly for their patients and is often considered medical malpractice. In the event of medical malpractice, consult with a medical malpractice professional such as JD.MD. We have been working with lawyers in Nova Scotia for many years and are aware of the legal issues involved in this specific area of law.
