Medical Misdiagnosis Advice

Misdiagnosis’s in the context of medical negligence is a common problem faced by medical practitioners. It often occurs when a hospital or health worker provides an inappropriate method of care, fails to provide correct care and/or improperly executes a method of care. In other words the medical professional gets the diagnosis of a condition totally wrong. This can lead to incorrect medication being dispensed or unnecessary surgery.

If a medical practitioner misdiagnoses a condition it can have a long lasting effect on a patient’s health.
Misdiagnosis can also occur when a medical practitioner fails to diagnose a medical condition completely, leading to unnecessary suffering and pain.

  • Doctors failing to refer patients for specialist medical advice
  • Misreporting making errors when reviewing diagnostic scans, biopsies and smear tests
  • Doctors Failing identify and diagnose fractures and other musculoskeletal injuries
  • Providing the incorrect treatment
