Failure to Diagnose Archives

Man receives millions after a failure to diagnose his ulcer

When a Houston resident goes to the doctor with a medical complaint, they assume their doctor will be able to figure out what is wrong with them. Most of the time doctors diagnose the correct ailment and are able to provide a treatment plan that works. But occasionally a patient suffers from their doctor's negligent failure to diagnose.

Each year, most Houston residents have at least one visit with their doctor. Most residents have visits for everything ranging from minor ailments to cancer. Houston residents are typically blessed with excellent medical care, but, occasionally, a medical provider is negligent in their care and their failure to diagnose a medical condition can have tragic consequences.

Many doctors do not know how dangerous painkillers can be

Prescription painkillers are drugs that many Houston residents might take in their lifetime.

Electronic health record errors are growing

As many people in Houston know, electronic medical records are appearing everywhere. From family physicians to hospitals, it seems like many medical providers are using computers to record healthcare and treatment details. But are these electronic health records accurate? The failure to follow acceptable standards in recording and maintaining electronic health records has led to an increase in medical malpractice lawsuits.
