Medical Negligence in Cyprus
Medical negligence, also known as clinical negligence, is a critical concern in Cyprus, impacting patient safety and well-being. This term encompasses various professional missteps by healthcare providers, including misdiagnoses, delayed diagnoses, surgical mishaps, and the failure to administer appropriate treatment in Cyprus. It broadly applies to a range of medical practitioners, including doctors, nurses, dentists, physiotherapists, and psychologists.
Under the Civil Wrongs Law (Cap.148), Cyprus law defines medical negligence as an unlawful, intentional, or negligent act or omission by a medical practitioner during their professional practice. This law holds practitioners accountable for any harm resulting from their negligence in Cyprus.
