Software malfunction caused 20 hospitals in Israel to administer incorrect medications to patients. Patients who received the wrong medications may be able to sue for medical malpractice. A class action lawsuit could be filed on behalf of all affected patients. The hospitals, the Health Ministry, and the software manufacturer could potentially be sued. Compensation for non-economic damages in Israel is relatively low, so proving actual harm may be necessary. Concealing the malfunction for 10 days could be considered negligence or a criminal offense.
