Abstract

Iatrogenesis refers to harm experienced by patients resulting from medical care, whereas negligence is more narrowly conceived as deviation from standard care. While all harm resulting from negligence is iatrogenic, not all iatrogenic injury is negligent. This commentary on a case about a patient with a minoritized identity at the end of his life argues that criteria by which an iatrogenic injury is deemed negligent depend on how practice standards are defined.
