New Jersey Medical Malpractice Law - Misdiagnosed Infections

Medical malpractice is an unfortunate reality in this country. According to the Institute of Medicine, nearly 100,000 people die each year due to preventable medical mistakes. Common medical mistakes include:

  • botched surgery and surgical errors,
  • medication/pharmacy errors,
  • misdiagnosed cancer, and
  • misdiagnosed infection.

In cases of misdiagnosed infections or infections which go undiagnosed, many patients die. Those that survive often suffer through extended hospital stays and invasive treatment. Bacterial infections such as a staph infection can lead to amputations. Lives may be literally turned upside down.

Infections are often negligently diagnosed due to any number of the following reasons:

  • error in communication between hospital departments,
  • failure to order lab or other diagnostic tests, and
  • failure to treat with the proper medication.
