Defensive Medicine & Medical Malpractice Law
Defensive Medicine: This term refers to the practice where medical professionals make treatment and diagnostic decisions with the primary goal of avoiding litigation that may be brought against them, rather than letting patient need determine the course of treatment. This practice often results in excessive medical testing, which is used as a precautionary tool.
