Is medical staff rudeness malpractice? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Unfortunately, bad bedside manner does not amount to medical malpractice. When this firm decides to take a malpractice case we are generally looking for permanent and catastrophic injuries. The reason is that malpractice cases are very expensive and difficult to litigate. Before we take a case we need to be sure that we will obtain a good result for you. Unlike an automobile accident, medical malpractice cases require expert doctors and they are not cheap. When you are unhappy with the way your doctor or other medical provider treats you than you should voice your complaints to the hospital management.  You will not likely recovery any money for your trouble but it might make you feel better.
