Examples of Diagnosis Errors

There are several different types of diagnosis errors, some of which are as follows:

  • Delayed Diagnosis: As you know, medical issues are often time-sensitive. Delayed diagnosis is when a medical professional fails to diagnose a patient in a timely fashion, thereby causing the patient’s condition to worsen. A delayed diagnosis can happen if a doctor either improperly analyzes test results or fails to order certain tests, among other scenarios.
  • Misdiagnosis: Not infrequently, doctors will diagnose their patients with the wrong medical condition. Doing so may lead to administering the wrong medication, performing the wrong surgeries, and more. Rather obviously, this can lead to very serious medical complications as a result.
  • Failure to Diagnose: Failing to diagnose a medical condition altogether is also relatively common. Not dissimilar to delayed diagnosis, failing to diagnose a medical condition, such as cancer, can cause the condition to worsen or spread.

Damages Caused By Diagnosis Errors

As previously stated, a delayed diagnosis, or the failure to diagnose a patient altogether, can cause their condition to worsen as it progresses. In some cases, patients are harmed to a point of no return. Diagnosing cancer or any other medical condition as quickly as possible is always critical. In many cases, cancer diagnosed early on can be taken care of with treatment. However, after it progresses to a certain point, certain treatments may no longer be an option.

Often, diagnosis errors cause serious, and sometimes permanent harm to a patient. In the worst cases, a diagnosis error can even lead to the death of a patient. This is unacceptable, and if it happened to you or a loved one, you can rely on a Prince George’s County diagnosis errors lawyer here at McCarthy, Winkelman & Mester, LLP.
