While there are numerous diagnostic tests available for doctors, it is not uncommon for errors to be made. Misdiagnosis or failed diagnoses can result from several factors, including:

  • Not listening to patient complaints
  • Not taking a proper patient history
  • Ordering the wrong diagnostic tests
  • Failure to properly interpret test results
  • Incorrectly identifying symptoms
  • Missing crucial symptoms during the diagnostic process

Improper Diagnoses Have Long-Term Consequences

It is crucial for doctors and nurses to make correct diagnoses no matter the severity of the condition or injury. There are several conditions, however, that a missed diagnosis can have devastating effects.

  • Cancer: Misreading or misinterpreting test results ultimately allow the condition to worsen. The further the cancer is allowed to spread can decrease the patient's chances for survival.
  • Brain injuries: Following a serious fall or motor vehicle accident, it is possible that the brain was injured and impaired functioning persists. Whether the damage was to the structure of the brain or its cognitive function, the injury must be properly diagnosed and immediately treated.
