Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S. These errors, lapses of judgment or pure neglect include poor communication and inadequate skills. Medical malpractice is by no means limited to hospitals, and occurs in other settings such as nursing homes.
Unfortunately, however, most of these cases go unreported. So, if you want to be compensated for the harm that you have suffered, as well as hold the healthcare professional(s) responsible for their actions, it's important to consult an experienced medical malpractice attorney.
Additionally, it is essential that those involved in the medical field maintain a standard of care that puts patient safety first, as well as keep up with relevant laws and regulations in order to avoid malpractice litigation.
Accordingly, we’ve compiled a list of medical malpractice Twitter feeds that both patients and practitioners can follow. It's based on Twitter data culled according to content, follower/following ratios, frequency of tweets, blog popularity, the opinions of other medical malpractice experts and influencers, as well as our own subjective judgment.
Note that some influential voices are not included, either because they don't have active Twitter accounts, or because they only tweet about medical malpractice sporadically. Here, our goal is to provide the best possible stream of medical malpractice law news and insight.
