Medical malpractice is negligence committed by a professional healthcare provider, such as a doctor or dentist who fails to treat a patient with the standard of care exercised by those with similar training and experience in the community, resulting in harm to the patient. Medical malpractice can occur when a doctor, or other medical professional does something wrong, (such as operating on a healthy organ) or when a medical professional fails to provide necessary treatment in a timely manner.
