Lab Errors Resulting in Misdiagnosis
Getting to the truth about medical lab mistakes
When a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, lab technician, radiologist or other hospital or clinic staff personnel makes a mistake, that mistake can have serious consequences. Clinic and hospital lab errors can mean being treated for the wrong condition or not treated for an existing condition. Lab mistakes can involve a variety of things, for example:
- Mistakes in testing can lead to incorrect results
- A mistake is made in recording results
- Your test results can be mixed up with someone else’s
- An improper reading of an X-ray or MRI can miss or exaggerate findings
A medical lab mistake can mean the wrong treatment, no treatment when needed, misdiagnosis, the wrong medication being prescribed, a real problem being ignored.
