Which medical errors should doctors disclose?


Historically, doctors have avoided disclosing the majority of medical errors to their patients out of fear of being sued for medical malpractice and because they were uncomfortable with the disclosure process. However, increasing numbers of doctors, including some in the Norman area, have come to see full disclosure of medical errors to patients as the best practice to follow.
