When considering misdiagnosis, the dangers are clear – a patient is being treated for an ailment they do not have, while the one they do have is left untreated. Not only can this cause worsened symptoms the longer that proper treatment is delayed, but it can also result in complications from a treatment that is not necessary. Recently, a Patient Safety Incidents (PSI) study by HealthGrades noted that themost common cause of patient safety violations was a "failure to rescue," otherwise known as failing to properly diagnose & treat.

In the emergency department (ED), studies have found that the rate of misdiagnosis can be even higher due to the high-stress, high-paced atmosphere. In fact, certain studies have said that in the ED, the rate of misdiagnosis can be as high as 20% – meaning that 1 in 5 patients could suffer from improper diagnosis of their symptoms. Due to this, if you or a loved one has suffered from misdiagnosis, you should not hesitate to consult with a New York City medical malpractice lawyer from The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny as soon as possible. Contact a New York City medical malpractice attorney from our firm today!
