People often associate the phrase "Medical Malpractice" to egregious physical acts of doctors such as amputating the wrong leg, or leaving a scalpel inside the sternum of a patient during surgery. However, medical malpractice can range from the physical acts to the non physical actions.
For example: A medical professional can be held liable for professional negligence/medical malpractice in Pennsylvania for deviating from an appropriate standard of care, i.e. failing to diagnose a disease, giving poor advice directing a patient not to take appropriate action when the medical standards require otherwise.
