Negligent Action

An important question to ask yourself is whether or not the treatment you received at St. Georges Hospital was negligent. It is important to keep in mind that people are different and sometimes react differently to the same things. A medical procedure that might fail completely for you might be a complete success for someone else. That doesn't necessarily mean that the healthcare professional was negligent, simply that the treatment wasn't the right one for you. If a treatment is recognised as a proper one by a substantial body of medical professionals it's use will not be considered wrong or negligent even if it should have failed in your case. To be negligent treatment must have failed to reach a reasonable standard when compared to treatment offered by other healthcare professionals.
