Clinical Patterns


Standardized medical procedures or routines for treating specific medical conditions. When clinical patterns become an accepted standard of care and are followed by physicians and hospitals, their exposure to claims alleging medical malpractice is generally reduced. However, the reverse is also true, so that when treatment deviates from an accepted clinical pattern, the exposure is increased.
