Did a Doctor Fail to Diagnose a Medical Condition in Time?
In the health care profession, time is everything. Timely diagnosis and treatment of a medical condition can save a life. Unfortunately, a misdiagnosis that sends treatment down the wrong path or the complete failure to diagnose a medical condition can be tragic. In the case of some medical conditions, like cancer, diagnosis and treatment that are delayed by days or weeks can mean that opportunities are missed to add years to the patient's life or even eradicate the cancer altogether. In the case of heart attack, stroke or similar emergency medical conditions, even an hour can mean the difference between life and death.
