Take home points:
The jurisdiction of such deaths will depend on local laws and customs.
The occurrence of a death related to a procedure does not necessarily mean malpractice.
A manner of accident does NOT equate with malpractice.
The mishap may be the cause of the death, a contributor to the death, or incidental to the death.
When in doubt about a case, consult with your medical examiner or coroner.
