Types of Common Diagnosing Errors We See in Ohio

Illnesses left untreated for a long time can lead to high-risk surgery or even death in some cases, which may result in a potential wrongful death lawsuit. A misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or other diagnostic errors may include any of the following cases:

  • Misinterpretation of tests
  • Delayed diagnosis of cancer
  • Failure to order a biopsy
  • Failure to order necessary lab or medical tests
  • Failure to properly analyze lab results
  • Failure to refer to a specialist
  • Failure to monitor changes in a patient's progression of a misdiagnosed disease

A diagnosing error does not necessarily occur in an emergency room. A routine checkup at your doctor's office may result in a misdiagnosis. In some cases, medical professionals such as lab technicians or radiologists may misread tests done on a patient. Doctors may also fail to order testing or some other form of hospital negligence may occur.
