Failure to Diagnose

failure to diagnose

A very common medical negligence error is a failure to diagnose an illness, condition, disease or syndrome. Cancers, lyme disease and autoimmune disorders like diabetes are some of the more common issues seen in failure to diagnose claims in Delaware, Maryland and Washington D.C. Much like a medical misdiagnosis failure to accurately diagnose any type of illness stems from healthcare provider negligence. Either they did not acquire a full, and comprehensive, patient history, certain diagnostic tests were overlooked (labs, biopsies, bloodwork, x-rays, MRI, CT scans, etc.) and in many cases they were not ordered at all. Cases in which there is a delayed or inaccurate diagnosis, as well as failing to diagnose any illness or condition can easily result in the health issue, such as breast cancer, advancing to another stage which means treatment options that were available now are not and the outcome becomes bleak.
