An acupuncturist is a health care provider that specializes in treating pain or disease by inserting the tips of needles at specific points on the skin.  Acupuncture is a method of healing developed in China at least 2,000 years ago and is considered a form of complementary or alternative medicine.  In Florida, an acupuncturist must be licensed by the Florida Board of Acupuncture.  Acupuncture is also used in conjunction with other techniques such as herbs, massaging, cupping, moxibusion, and electro-stimulation, including laser devices.   When an acupuncturist's level of medical care, skill or treatment falls below the standard of care and inflicts serious injury or death to a patient, malpractice may have occurred. Unfortunately, even the best acupuncturist can commit errors and mistakes that may result in serious injuries or death.

Acupuncturist malpractice and negligence may include:

  • Departure from Accepted Standards of Acupuncture;
  • Failure to diagnose a condition;
  • Failure to document carefully;
  • Failure to document findings;
  • Failure to monitor patient;
  • Failure to treat illness or pain;
  • Failure to refer patient to physician or specialist when cancer or other illness is discovered;
  • Needle breaking inside patient;
  • Needle placed too deep, causing injury;
  • Use of unsterile needles causing infections, diseases or other conditions.
