What Is Medical Malpractice in Ohio?

A question that we’re often asked is “what is considered medical malpractice in Ohio?”

In the state of Ohio, medical malpractice occurs when a medical care provider, whether a physician, nurse, dentist, technician, hospital or nursing home, fails to act as a reasonably prudent care provider would act under same or similar conditions.

In a medical malpractice case, the patient must prove two things:

  1. the care provider owed them a duty, and
  2. an act or failure to act breached this duty proximately causing them damages.

The duty starts with a physician-patient or nurse-patient relationship, and it ensures the providers act within the national standard of care for a particular situation.
