Claims for Breach of Contract

Generally, most medical malpractice cases are tort actions based on the existence of a physician's duty to a patient, a breach of that duty, and injury to the patient as a result of the breach. Most healthcare providers do not promise a cure nor guarantee the best possible result. However, an individual physician may open him or herself up to a breach of contract action based on the provision of medical services resulting from a bad medical result if the physician has bound himself to cure the patient or to obtain specific results.

Malpractice by Pharmacists

New drugs are rapidly being developed and marketed, and more prescriptions are being written than ever before. The population as a whole is aging, and elderly patients account for about one-third of all drugs consumed. The practice of pharmacy itself has radically changed over the last decade. Whereas most pharmacies used to be part of family owed drug stores, they are now frequently owned and operated by national corporations and supermarket chains to allow the consumer to pick up his or her medicine at the same time as groceries and other supplies. The convenience of these superstores can be overshadowed by reckless mistakes made when pharmacists are required to fill a high number of prescriptions. Pharmacy experts conclude that a large part of the problem is a shortage of pharmacists.
