What is medical malpracticeWhat is medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.

If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?

If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct.
You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.

How far back does Healthgrades malpractice history go?

Healthgrades reports details of a doctor’s malpractice history when the doctor has at least one closed medical malpractice claim within the last five years, even if he or she no longer practices in that state.

For which states does Healthgrades collect malpractice history?

Healthgrades collects malpractice information from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact your quality of care. Sometimes multiple states report the same claim. If a provider practices in a state where data is unavailable, please reach out to your local state legislature to help make this data publicly available.
