Failure to Diagnose
Closely related to the misdiagnosis of a disease or illness is the failure to diagnose. These cases often have the same devastating effects and can lead to a more immediate death if the failure to diagnose is related to a stroke or heart attack. Many failure-to-diagnose cases stem from understaffed and overutilized emergency rooms. A medical emergency requires special attention from medical staff in order to see that the situation is properly handled. However, due to the confusion and chaos that often exists in an emergency facility, a patient may suffer and be injured as a result.
