Failure to Diagnose
My Doctor Failed to Make the Right Diagnosis
When it comes to fighting cancer, heart disease and other serious medical conditions, early detection is critical. A patient’s prognosis for recovery improves significantly with most diseases and adverse medical conditions when early detection is achieved.
Fortunately, medical technology has improved to such an extent that early detection is often possible if doctors, nurses and other medical professionals perform their job in a competent manner. When medical professionals ignore known risks, take shortcuts or simply fail to exercise reasonable care, however, patients may not benefit from technology that may have detected their condition and prevented serious or fatal injury.
