Medical Negligence in Cyprus
Medical negligence in Cyprus is a serious issue that can have significant consequences for patients. It refers to any type of error, omission, or inappropriate action taken by a healthcare professional that causes harm or injury to a patient. This can include issues such as misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, surgical errors, and failure to provide proper treatment.
Medical negligence is often referred to as clinical negligence since it covers not only core medical professionals such as doctors and nurses but also dentists, physiotherapists, psychologists etc.
In Cyprus, the Civil Wrongs Law (Cap.148) is the main legislation that governs medical negligence. This law defines medical negligence as “any unlawful and intentional or negligent act or omission by a medical practitioner in the exercise of his profession.” It also states that a medical practitioner can be held liable for any damages caused by their negligence.
