What is Military Malpractice?

Those military officials who are treated by a military doctor or a medical specialist have the right to protect themselves and stay safe during the treatment. In certain cases, these patients may file a medical malpractice case against those accountable, although there are some actions i.e. Feres Doctrine that may create hurdles, making it difficult for the patient to report the case.

An individual who is has been exposed to a medical malpractice should file a claim as soon as they have suffered the damage or developed a disease as a result of the irresponsible behavior of military medical doctors. As in any other medical malpractice case, a military malpractice is caused by the military doctor’s negligence in terms of dosage, timing, provision of check-ups, recommended medications or in relation to secondary mental or physical issues.

The Duties of Healthcare Professionals in the Military

A military medical professional has the responsibility to take care of patients suffering from a variety health issues. They are also responsible to keep all the military personnel fit so that they can perform the duties and responsibilities that are assigned to them.

For instance, a military doctor or a psychiatric staff member monitoring the military personnel who determined that they suffer from post-traumatic stress should send them to treatment for this condition. They must also identify the classification of the disease and indicate methods that would be helpful in treating patients.

If the military psychiatric is unable to identify the issues faced by the military personnel, until their condition deteriorates so much they are discharged from the military, they will be considered to have breached their professional duty.
