Lack of Medical Ethics

Every day, doctors around the country face new challenges and have to make tough decisions that can forever change a patient’s life. Occasionally, situations may arise that test a doctor’s sense of right and wrong. For these decisions, physicians are guided by their Hippocratic Oath, which clearly states that doctors should foremost do no harm to their patients. However, not all physicians make choices that honor this promise.

If a physician has abused or mistreated you, contact the Charleston medical malpractice lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800. Let our experience and knowledge of the law assist you in better understanding your legal options today.

INSTANCES OF MEDICAL ETHICS VIOLATIONS

Violating the code of conduct between doctors and patients can have serious consequences for patient health. A doctor’s sense of right often translates more practically as a willingness to keep the patient’s best interests in mind. A good doctor will consider how the patient feels, how comfortable they are, and whether or not they are prepared for certain treatment options. Failure to keep up this sense of ethics can appear in some of the following instances:

  • Unnecessary tests and treatments
  • Failure to adequately explore diagnoses or treatment options
  • Miscommunication with patients
  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual misconduct

In particular, sexual misconduct and physically assaulting a patient represent abuses of a position of power. As a result, patients may feel that they can do little to protect themselves from these attacks and may even be afraid to report their physician.
