Did An Error Cost You The Chance For A Better Outcome?

One of the key elements of effective health care is timely and accurate diagnosis. If a diagnosis is inaccurate or not delivered on time the consequences can be devastating. Failed diagnoses and missed diagnoses can exacerbate illnesses and injuries.

Some of the most common illnesses and injuries that a failure to diagnose or a misdiagnosis can have the greatest impact on include:

  • Cancer
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke

Failure To Diagnose Cancer

Cancer is an insidious disease that requires early detection for treatment to be as effective as possible. When opportunities are missed that could have exposed the cancer sooner and led to treatment beginning earlier, there needs to be accountability. The difference between being able to recover and a terminal case can rest on how early the cancer is detected.

The Importance Of Timely Diagnosis

An inaccurate or missed diagnosis can create a wide range of problems including delaying the beginning of effective treatment. Almost all illnesses are easier to treat if treatment is begun sooner.
