    Iatrogenic?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iatrogenesis IatrogenesisFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to searchAncient Greek painting in a vase, showing a physician (iatros) bleeding a patientIatrogenesis (from the Greek for "brought forth by the healer") refers to any effect on a person, resulting from any activity of one or more other persons acting as healthcare professionals or promoting products or services as beneficial to health, which does not support a goal of the person affected.[1][2][3][4][5][6]While some[7] have advocated using the term to refer to all "events caused by the health care delivery team", whether "positive or negative", consensus limits use of iatrogenesis to adverse effects, including (in the broadest sense) all adverse unforeseen outcomes as well as foreseen outcomes from medication or other medical treatment or intervention. Some iatrogenic effects are clearly defined and easily recognized, such as a complication following a surgical procedure (e.g., lymphedema as a result of breast cancer surgery); less obvious ones, such as complex drug interactions, may require significant investigation to identify.Cases of iatrogenesis may include:complications arising from a medical procedure or treatmentside effects of possible drug interactionsmedical errorsnegligenceuse of contaminated instrumentsanxiety or annoyance in the patient, physician or treatment provider in relation to medical procedures or treatmentsunnecessary medical treatment resulting from a physician's decision
