Standard of Care & Negligence

There is no absolute standard so far as clinical negligence is concerned. There is no statutory definition that covers the issue. Whether or not doctors, dentists, nurses and technicians working at Kings Health Centre have been negligent is determined by comparing allegedly erroneous treatment with treatment offered by other reasonably competent healthcare practitioners working with similar patients in a similar location.
