Failing to Diagnose Patients in Palm Beach Gardens
Medical malpractice laws seek to ensure that the patient receives the most competent care possible. Notably, this includes receiving an accurate assessment of any health problems, as well as a plan for treating any health concerns based on the condition.
When a doctor fails to diagnose, they fail to make the connection between present symptoms and a medical condition, and no course of treatment is taken or properly followed. In a report released by the Institute of Medicine, a large percentage of Americans will receive either a late or wrong diagnosis at least once in their lives.
When a doctor fails to make a proper diagnosis or they give a delayed diagnosis, it can mean that a treatable disease is given the chance to progress to a point where it is now impossible or much harder to cure and treat, thus resulting in more invasive and extensive treatment plans.
