I know there are as many mistakes that can be made my medical staff as there are words in the dictionary, but what types could possibly lead to the physicians medical license being indefinitely suspended or revoked along with their hospital privileges? Would a simple big mistake do it, or would there need to be mitigating factors such as drug use involved? Some background info: This mistake would take place in an emergency room/trauma ward setting. I'm thinking the patient involved would be pediatric and said mistake would result in the death of the individual. I don't think blatant negligence would be a factor here, but if it helps, the MC is a young physician roughly 2-5 years out of med school. She also has a background as a medic in the U.S. military during the Iraq/Afghanistan conflicts before coming to work in a stateside hospital as an ER doc. Preferably I'd like this error to be something that can really sting her hard, beyond just being responsible for a child's death.
