What are three issues related to being a medical assistant that can deal with malpractice

I am writing a paper on this topic and just need three good ideas. I am taking medical assisting up in school and just need to know what are some issues that can come across me that someone can sue me for in this field.

Some of the issues related to being a medical assistant that can deal with malpractice include prescribing the wrong medication to patients, not being thorough with a patient's medical history thereby missing pre-existing conditions resulting in the death of a patient or making the patient's condition worse through negligence. Any of these can lead a patient to sue you for malpractice.
