What does failure to diagnose mean? Before any effective treatment can begin, the cause of whatever the patient is experiencing must be correctly diagnosed. Your doctor is responsible for a proper diagnosis and for conducting the appropriate tests that will confirm a diagnosis. We do not pay our health care professionals to make guesses about what may be causing our problems. The medical field has certain defined standards of practice. When your doctor fails to practice by those standards, he or she may be guilty of medical malpractice and you should consult a medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible.
Medicine has determined many signs and indicators that can predict strokes and heart conditions as well as other diseases and conditions. Technology continues to provide methods of testing for these illnesses, allowing them to be treated and to prevent tragic events. When irresponsible or negligent practitioners fail to use these tests and do not meet the basic standards of care defined by their profession, they are guilty of medical malpractice or medical negligence.
