A Failure to Diagnose is Dangerous
The proper and speedy diagnosis of a medical condition is a primary part of the care that your doctor provides to you. All treatment, medication and follow up care are based upon this diagnosis. If a doctor cannot or does not properly diagnose an illness or injury, the patient will suffer the consequences. A failure to diagnose a medical condition will mean that the patient will not receive the treatment he or she needs. The patient may be discharged from the hospital when actually suffering from a deadly condition that could have been treated had the doctor provided proper care in making a diagnosis.
