The Most Common Cause of Medical Malpractice
Statistics are very revealing, and you may be familiar with the saying “numbers don’t lie”. Recent numbers are showing that the medical industry is highly flawed when determining a correct diagnosis, which is such a delicate issue since treatments are determined and administered to patients based precisely on the diagnosis. Unfortunately these incorrect mis-diagnosed instances frequently result in serious injury or even death. The most common cause of medical malpractice is an inaccurate diagnosis. As medical malpractice Attorneys in Orlando, we are very familiar with these tragedies which we have been witnessing for many years.
With all the constant improvements and advancements in medical technology, you would think that these mistakes would no longer occur; but the truth is disappointing. Most incidents of mis-diagnosis are due to human error, sometimes they might be caused by equipment malfunction. Either way, the medical industry is held to a higher standard when it comes to responsibility and liability towards their services to the public. The expected standard of care cannot be compromised by inadequate skills or faulty equipment.
Granted that accurate diagnosis can be a challenge with some symptoms, there have been some efforts for improvement by using computer programs that will show a Doctor all possible diagnosis’s based on the input of symptoms.
