Misdiagnosis
and Failure to
Diagnose and
Treat

When a healthcare professional fails to properly diagnose or treat a medical condition, the patient’s health may be temporarily or permanently compromised. A healthcare professional may mistakenly dismiss present complaints or symptoms. Often the healthcare professional fails to order the correct medical tests or fails to properly interpret the test results.

  • Unsanitary surgical environment; unsanitary medical instruments

  • Patient who actually experiences the pain of the surgical procedure but cannot speak or move due to failed anesthesia

Prescription Errors

Prescription Errors

Prescription errors occur frequently:

  • Patients may become ill or die if they receive the wrong medication
  • Prescribers are responsible for prescribing medication that is not injurious to the patient’s health
  • Pharmacies and pharmacists must dispense the proper medication; dosage must be correct

The emergency room of a hospital is often understaffed and overworked. It can be an extremely busy environment and medical errors are common.

Emergency
Room Errors

Medical errors occur in virtually all phases of medical treatment and in all departments in the hospital. Nurses are supposed to carry out the orders of the physician but often make mistakes, resulting in harm or death. If you were injured by this type of medical negligence, you may seek compensation for your injuries. If a loved one died, the heirs may file a wrongful death lawsuit.
