How Does a Misdiagnosis Occur?

When a doctor diagnoses one injury or illness as another, this is known as a misdiagnosis. The result can be the worsening of a condition due to a lack of helpful treatment. In some situations, the attempted treatment can actually directly exacerbate the patient’s condition. It might seem unthinkable for a physician to make such a crucial mistake but it is estimated that more than 10 million Americans will be misdiagnosed each year.

  • Causes of misdiagnosis that put liability on the doctor are:
  • Inexperience: Doctors that are not familiar with a patient or a condition should not hesitate to seek out a second opinion. A misdiagnosis that occurs due to inexperience could have been entirely avoided if another physician was consulted or allowed to review the patient's records.
  • Exhaustion: A doctor working within a hospital may be needed on-hand for the better portion of a day, if not longer. This naturally leads to exhaustion, which in turn leads to misdiagnoses and other forms of dangerous medical malpractice.
  • Haste: Rushing between patients to try to see more of them in a given amount of time does no one any favors, and may be the source of a mistake that causes a dangerous misdiagnosis.
  • Unkempt records: The medical records kept at a hospital or clinic must be thoroughly organized and clearly distinguishable. Inadvertently swapping patient records could cause a doctor to overlook a preexisting condition and misdiagnose a new one.
