Certain disorders still being misdiagnosed by doctors

Many North Carolina patients know that a misdiagnosis could result in serious damages or even death. However, researchers and doctors are attempting to reduce the rate of misdiagnoses by analyzing research from autopsies, physician-reported errors and error types. Findings from the research included diseases that were more likely to be misdiagnosed and how the misdiagnoses occurred.

Misdiagnosis in young adult stroke victims

Young adults in North Carolina who may be at risk of stroke may face medical complications if emergency room doctors fail to diagnose. Stroke is relatively rare for young adults, and doctors may diagnose symptoms as signs of vertigo, intoxication, migraine or other less serious issues. These symptoms may lead to a hospital discharge when it is not warranted and could result in worsening of symptoms, possibly resulting in permanent damage.

Misdiagnosis is still an issue for North Carolina residents

A misdiagnosis of an ailment is one of the last things that a patient or a doctor wishes to see happen when trying to deal with a medical problem. Records from medical malpractice claims indicate that the bulk of misdiagnosis cases that lead a patient to seek compensation through insurance or legal actions arise from heart problems, cancers and infections, including sepsis and meningitis. One method of discovering data concerning misdiagnosis is through autopsies.

Cancer misdiagnosis: North Carolina woman cautions other patients

When Fayetteville residents experience abnormal symptoms that could indicate that there is something seriously wrong with their health, they turn to their physicians and other medical experts for help. After all, it is the duty of doctors to carefully analyze each patient's unusual symptoms and to perform any necessary tests in order to rule out a serious disorder or to make a proper diagnosis.

Child left blind and brain damaged after doctor's misdiagnosis

Children in North Carolina are treated every day by their doctors for minor illnesses such as colds, the flu and ear infections. But when pediatricians become too comfortable with assuming one's symptoms are a result of a minor illness, they could mistakenly ignore other symptoms that could suggest that a child is suffering from something far more severe than a cold. Failing to properly diagnose a child with an illness could result in further health complications if the child is not treated correctly and effectively.
