Failure To Diagnose: A Medical Error

A misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a medical condition can be a life-threatening medical error. You rely on your doctor and physician assistants, nurses, lab technicians and other medical personnel to provide a diagnosis that is early and accurate: your health may depend upon it. Unfortunately, when a condition is misdiagnosed or diagnosis is delayed, it may result in life changing injury or even death.

Consequences of Failure to Diagnose and Treat

When a condition goes undiagnosed, some examples of serious or fatal consequences:

  • cancer may advance to an untreatable or “end stage”
  • ruptured appendix may result in prolonged convalescence or death
  • heart disease or heart attack resulting in disability
  • infection may require lengthy treatment, including IV antibiotics and surgery

There are a number of bases for pursuing a medical malpractice claim. A physician may fail to order necessary tests, or fail to recognize the early symptoms of an otherwise treatable disease. Test results can be misread or mixed up with other patient’s results. All of these can lead to critical delays in diagnosis and treatment.
