Failure to Diagnose

The first step in receiving treatment for a medical issue is to be diagnosed by a physician. When the diagnosis is incorrect, then every subsequent step will also be wrong and the underlying issue will remain untreated. Physicians should have the training, experience, and knowledge to be able to recognize conditions and administer the proper treatment. However, sometimes moments of negligence will result in missed diagnoses. In some cases, these errors can be fatal.

Dangerous Diagnostic Errors

Though a diagnostic error is not terribly dangerous in a number of situations, it can cause a great deal of trouble for those suffering from any of the following conditions:

  • Meningitis
  • Stroke
  • Heart Attack
  • Cancer

Because these illnesses are particularly aggressive and deadly, a diagnosis error can create a very dangerous delay in treatment. The patient will have to go through failed treatment and reassessment before he or she is delivered the proper care. In these situations, the consequences can be devastating.
