It is important to understand that a bad result from a surgery is not necessary considered medical malpractice. However, there are accepted standards of care for surgical procedures, and surgeons are expected to follow to them.
More often than not, victims do not even realize they have become a victim of medical malpractice. In fact according to a study released by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), hospital employees are only reporting about fourteen percent of all medical errors and usually do not change their practice to prevent future harm to patients.
