Medical Crew Negligence on a Cruise Ship
Every cruise ship has a medical crew on board that is there to address any minor or serious health threats or injuries that occur onboard. Though we want to be able to fully rely on such a crew, sometimes these crew members are negligent in their duties, causing passengers even greater harm. Unfortunately, the reality is that medical crews on cruise ships all too often act negligently and in various ways, causing you and your loved one’s undue harm.
What Constitutes Medical Crew Negligence?
There are a variety of behaviors that could constitute medical negligence onboard a cruise ship. For instance, the following consist of some fairly common types of medical crew negligence that could occur on a cruise ship:
- Failure to diagnose
- Wrong diagnosis
- Lack of informed consent
- Incorrect medical procedure
- Failure to treat
Any of these acts of negligence or carelessness can quickly threaten the health and well-being of a cruise passenger. Because of the extreme harm that medical negligence can have, especially when passengers do not have as ready of access to other forms of treatment as when on land, these professionals can be held accountable for their negligence.
