What is Misdiagnosis?

Misdiagnosis refers to a situation where a healthcare professional fails to correctly identify a patient's medical condition or provides an incorrect diagnosis. Misdiagnosis can lead to delayed or inappropriate treatment, worsening of the patient's condition, or even death in severe cases. When misdiagnosis occurs as a result of negligence or substandard care, it can be considered a form of medical malpractice.

When Does Misdiagnosis Occur?

Misdiagnosis can occur due to various factors, including inadequate medical history taking, incomplete physical examinations, errors in laboratory tests or imaging studies, misinterpretation of test results, failure to consider alternative diagnoses, or cognitive biases of the healthcare provider.

Misdiagnosis can take different forms, including:

  • False Positive: Diagnosing a condition that the patient does not have.
  • False Negative: Failing to diagnose a condition that the patient actually has.
  • Incorrect Diagnosis: Providing a diagnosis that is different from the patient's actual condition.

Misdiagnosis can have serious consequences for patients, such as delayed or inappropriate treatment, progression of the disease, unnecessary procedures or surgeries, adverse effects from unnecessary medications, emotional distress, decreased quality of life, and even death.

How to Prove Misdiagnosis

To establish a medical malpractice case based on misdiagnosis, certain elements must be proven:

  • Doctor-Patient Relationship: It must be established that a doctor-patient relationship existed, meaning the healthcare professional was responsible for providing care to the patient.
  • Negligence: It must be shown that the healthcare professional breached the standard of care by failing to meet the accepted medical standards in diagnosing the patient's condition.
  • Causation: It must be demonstrated that the misdiagnosis directly caused harm to the patient. This involves proving that a competent doctor would have made the correct diagnosis, and the patient's outcome would have been different with a timely and accurate diagnosis.
  • Damages: The patient must suffer damages as a result of the misdiagnosis, such as physical pain, medical expenses, lost wages, emotional distress, or disability.

In misdiagnosis cases, plaintiffs must obtain expert testimony. Medical experts in the same field as the defendant are called upon to evaluate the facts of the case, review medical records, and provide their professional opinion on whether the misdiagnosis constituted a breach of the standard of care.
