No one wants to think that their doctor, who should be providing them with the best care possible, could ever make a mistake. But mistakes are possible and sadly, common. Sometimes the patient is lucky and the mistake doesn’t harm them, but in other cases, their health and ability to function are put on the line.
Just recently, a family was awarded $11 million dollars in a medical malpractice lawsuit where they claimed that the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia failed to diagnose their son with meningitis. According to court records, in December of 2009, the child’s mother took him to the Emergency Department because of a fever and difficulty breathing. He was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection and sent home. The next day she brought him back because his symptoms were worse, not better. An attending doctor examined the child, took chest x-rays which were clear and showed no sign of an infection or pneumonia, and then discharged them without any additional testing and only a recommendation to follow up with a primary care doctor.
The mother and child returned to the ER for the third time the next day where he was examined by several nurses and several doctors, all of whom continued to work up the child for a respiratory issue despite the previous testing. It wasn’t until six hours after being admitted that a doctor ordered a lumbar puncture which ultimately showed the child had meningitis. He was finally admitted to the PICU but by then it was too late, the disease had caused bilateral hearing loss and brain damage. This is why his family chose to pursue legal action against three of the doctors and the hospital, alleging that if the correct diagnosis had been made the first time the child had been seen, he wouldn’t have suffered hearing loss and brain damage.
This is just one example of how medical malpractice can change a life forever. Other common mistakes include surgical mistakes, prescription errors, and birth injuries.
