Whether or not the healthcare professional at Monash Medical Centre has been negligent is a matter for a court of law. In general, medical negligence is determined by comparing the allegedly negligent healthcare providers with similar reasonably competent healthcare providers â€“ there is no absolute standard of care that must be achieved. One hospital is compared to another and those with a lesser standard may be considered to be negligent in certain circumstances. The mere fact that one treatment has failed whereas another treatment may have succeeded does not of necessity mean that the failed treatment was negligent. Provided that the failed treatment is logical and is supported by a substantial body of healthcare professionals there will be no finding of medical negligence simply because the chosen treatment was not effective.
Personal injury compensation claims against Monash Medical Centre alleging clinical negligence have time limits known as the limitation period. Generally speaking if a Monash Medical Centre negligence compensation claim has not been settled or if proceedings have not been issued by a court of law within the limitation period then the opportunity of being awarded damages has usually been lost. There are exceptions for minors and for those who are mentally disabled. Limitation issues are generally complex legal matters that require qualified legal advice.
