Pediatric Cardiologist Medical Malpractice
Pediatric Cardiologists work in a very specialized field. Not only are they specialized in the area of cardiology but in the field of cardiology associated with children. This requires years of additional training after medical school, including residency training, possible fellowships, and board certification.
When a Pediatric Cardiologist makes a mistake, the results are often fatal. Heart conditions require special treatment in most cases, and without that treatment, most patients will not survive. When a mistake fails to meet the applicable standard of care in the field, the Pediatric Cardiologist can be held responsible for a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Common Malpractice Claims Against Pediatric Cardiologists
Common claims for medical malpractice against Pediatric Cardiologists include, but are not limited to the following.
- Failure to Treat Heart Conditions: Heart conditions, such as arrhythmia, pulmonary stenosis, or pericarditis can cause serious harm or death in a child. If a doctor fails to treat the disease and does so negligently, the doctor is responsible for the damages.
- Misdiagnosis: If a Pediatric Cardiologist fails to diagnose a condition they should have caught or misidentified the condition, the wrong treatment (or no treatment) will occur. This can be fatal, and at the very least cause harm to your child.
- Improper Prescribing: If a child is given the wrong medication or the correct medication in the wrong dosage, the condition may go untreated, or even be made worse. This is dangerous, and should not be left unhandled.
