Psychiatric malpractice lawyers of Chicago
Psychologists, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals are responsible for providing appropriate care to their patients, who are often fragile and vulnerable. While such medical providers are primarily concerned with the proper diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders, they may also be held responsible for protecting the patient from harm, including possible suicide, as well as harm or injury to the general public.
Some of the most common examples of psychiatric malpractice include:
- Excessive or insufficient medication dosage
- Incorrect diagnosis or failure to recognize inter-related disorders
- Failure to recognize decline in psychiatric condition
- Failure to adequately supervise patient inclined to harm self or others
- False imprisonment - holding a patient against their will
