Medical malpractice is a legal concept indicating a level of guilt. Many patients feel that that have been harmed by medical malpractice on the part of their doctor, another medical professional, or the medical institution in which they were treated. These patients may use legal channels to sue for compensatory damages, or, in addition or instead of requesting compensatory damages, they may submit a complaint regarding the medical malpractice to the health authorities.
