Allied, or specified, medical professionals refers to a large group of medical related professionals that are NOT hospitals or physicians. Examples include chiropractors, dental hygienists, nurses, optometrists, veterinarians and many more.
While what they do generally wouldn’t fall under medical malpractice, they are still held to a higher standard of care and face many of the same claim allegations: failure to consult, failure to adequately develop and follow protocols, providing service beyond their scope, etc.
