Psychiatric/Mental Health Malpractice or Negligence

Psychiatric malpractice is a very real form of medical malpractice which can have devastating mental, emotional, and physical consequences. Mental health care providers have a duty to prescribe appropriate medications in the appropriate doses. The medications prescribed for psychological disorders are often dangerous and have the potential for serious side effects. Many of these drugs are even more dangerous if a patient suddenly stops taking them. Doctors have a duty to inform patients of the side effects of the drugs that they are prescribed and the dangers of ceasing medication.

Psychiatric malpractice may include any of the following:

    • Failure to diagnose
    • Failure to treat
    • Failure to recognize worsening of condition
    • Negligent psychotherapy
    • Failure to monitor medications or over-prescribing of narcotic medications
    • Medication errors resulting in injury or death
    • Failure to prevent harm to self or others
    • Inadequate supervision
    • Sexual misconduct
