Ohio Medical Malpractice Claim: Who's to Blame?

Mellino Law Firm

It’s common knowledge that you can file an Ohio medical malpractice claim against a doctor, hospital or surgeon. However, there are many other parties that could be held accountable for medical malpractice in Ohio.

They include:

  • Podiatrists – anyone licensed to practice podiatric surgery and medicine;
  • Registered nurses – nurses with RN credentials from the state board of nursing;
  • Licensed practical nurses – nurses licensed under the state board of nursing;
  • Chiropractors – anyone licensed by the state chiropractic board;
  • Optometrists – anyone licensed by the state board of optometry;
  • Physical therapists – those with a license to practice physical therapy;
  • Advanced practice nurses – certified nurse practitioners, certified registered nurse anesthetists and certified nurse midwives;
  • Residential facility – a licensed home where mentally disabled or developmentally disabled individuals reside;
  • Physician assistants – anyone with a valid certificate to practice; and
  • Emergency medical technicians – anyone certified to perform EMT duties.

If a healthcare provider stopped treating you or caused an injury, you may be able to pursue compensation for damages. To discuss your legal options, speak with a medical malpractice lawyer.
