Failure to Diagnose

Failure to Diagnose

A doctor's failure to diagnose a medical condition can have disastrous results. One most often hears about these medical malpractice cases when they involve cancer. Because cancer is a progressive disease that will only worsen over time, it is crucial to diagnose it as early as possible. However, a failure to diagnose a heart attack, brain aneurism or other similar condition can also be fatal.

A doctor, nurse, emergency room doctor, physician or other medical professional has the obligation to provide a proper and acceptable level of care in diagnosing a patient. The patient may arrive complaining of a particular symptom, and the doctor must then take the time to determine the underlying cause. This may not always be easy.

There are thousands upon thousands of different symptoms and illnesses out there, but a doctor will need to pinpoint the particular one that is affecting his or her patient. If the doctor makes a mistake or simply does not put in the necessary effort to make an accurate diagnosis, this may be a form of medical malpractice.
