A doctor has a duty to reach a list of possible diagnoses that describe a patient’s symptoms, then to focus on ruling out the diagnoses that pose the greatest risk. A doctor who fails to follow these basic steps can miss a diagnosis, with serious consequences for the patient. Some of the more common causes we see include failure to diagnose a heart attack.
Don’t let a hospital or doctor tell you these things happen in the course of medical care and cannot be prevented. Some of these actions most certainly can be avoided, and The Chiozza Law Firm will let you know it their actions were within the normal standard of care.
