Texas medical board fails to discipline negligent doctors

During the past two decades, 58 percent of Texas doctors who have been sanctioned for serious offenses have never been disciplined by the state medical board, according to the nonprofit organization Public Citizen. That means doctors who have been found negligent and liable for medical malpractice such as failure to diagnose, improper performance and failure to treat, have continued to practice medicine without any discipline.

Lawsuit settled after HIV misdiagnosis by doctor

When a doctor fails to listen and to follow standard procedures, it can result in serious harm to a patient, or even loss of life. Readers in Houston, Texas, should be aware that cases of misdiagnosis may occur when a doctor fails to admit a patient for emergency treatment, fails to diagnose and treat a heart attack, stroke or other ailment in a timely fashion, or fails to consider or diagnose known or probable complications. Recently, a $20 million lawsuit involving a misdiagnosis of HIV settled after seven years in court.
