Medical Malpractice Involving Lab Errors or Failure to Order Tests
Often the key to curing a disease is early diagnosis and treatment. Medical professionals diagnose many diseases and other health problems through a variety of tests, which lab technicians conduct and diagnosticians interpret.
Failure to order an appropriate test, a laboratory error while conducting a test or incorrect interpretation of test results can have dire consequences for the patient. It can result in delayed treatment, improper treatment or no medical treatment at all.
