Failure to Diagnose Archives

Patient struggles after doctor's failure to diagnose heart attack

Maryland readers may be interested in a recent report released by medical experts from the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine that states that most Americans who regularly visit a doctor will receive an incorrect or delayed diagnosis at least once during their lifetime. A doctor's failure to diagnose a patient correctly can be detrimental or even deadly. Yet, diagnostic errors such as this are often unmeasured.

In some situations, every minute counts for patients in hospitals, and mistakes can cost valuable time. It can be hard to place where the mistake occurred -- whether the details slipped through the cracks or the mistake was caused by some other error. Patients in every state, as well as in Maryland, hope that they will not fall victim to these types of mistakes, which can unfortunately lead to an untimely death.

Physician negligence caught on tape

A patient always hopes for the best and most professional care from his or her doctor, but unfortunately, the best is not what is always given. In fact, a doctor may be downright unprofessional when he or she thinks no one will find out. In Maryland, or in any state, physician negligence can negatively affect the patient.

In Maryland, and across the United States, patients turn to medical professionals for their expertise in proper diagnosis. The failure to diagnose properly can lead to death.

Maryland residents may be interested in a jury award following a medical malpractice lawsuit in another state. The case involved a doctor's failure to diagnose a post-operative complication.

Woman awarded $7 million-plus in failure to diagnose case

The faster a doctor in Maryland can accurately diagnose a medical condition, the more likely a patient is to get the medical treatment he or she needs to recover from the illness as quickly as possible. Failure to diagnose a patient, on the other hand, may cause a person to suffer long-term physical harm or even lose his or her life prematurely. One woman in another state was recently awarded damages in a case in which a doctor did not diagnose her properly.

Family claims physician negligence led to man's death

Failure to be properly diagnosed by a doctor in Maryland can unfortunately lead to one's death. This is the situation that one man's family members faced after they claimed that physician negligence led to their loved one's death. The case, which had gone to trial, was recently settled by the health care system and independent doctors' offices involved in the medical malpractice case.

Alleged failure to diagnose resulted in unnecessary surgery

A doctor's diagnosis is critical in determining which type of treatment a person in Maryland may need when suffering an illness. Failure to diagnose a health condition properly can prevent a patient from getting the right treatment, which can have serious consequences. One woman in another state recently sued a hospital and several doctors for reportedly misdiagnosing the cause of the weakness in her husband's legs.

Doctor error allegedly leads to patient's dental complications

One of the most frightening experiences a patient can have is to be injured by the very doctor in which he or she placed his or her trust.

The woman is suing the dental office, claiming she suffered complications resulting from a misdiagnosis and a latex allergy.
