When you place your health in the hands of competent medical professionals, you have the right to expect a certain quality of medical care in return including correct diagnosis and offering of correct treatment. Misdiagnosis occurs when a doctor or a hospital misses an initial diagnosis, fails to notice an important sign or symptom or fails to recognize a serious illness for what it is. Delayed diagnosis occurs when a doctor or hospital misses an opportunity to make the correct diagnosis and allows unnecessary time to pass before it is corrected.
When a patient believes his or her doctor or hospital missed or delayed the correct diagnosis, it is natural to feel overwhelmed. Not only are you likely suffering, but you have to come to grips with the belief that you may have missed an opportunity for a more positive outcome due to error. This is likely to result in feelings of injustice and betrayal, as well as sadness and anger.
