A failure to diagnose can constitute medical malpractice

Without question, one of the most painful injuries any Kentucky resident can experience is a broken bone. A fracture, no matter how minor, requires the proper treatment and care in order to heal quickly and correctly. However, treatment cannot be administered if the injury is never diagnosed in the first place. A man in another state claims that medical providers failed to diagnose broken bones in his foot and he filed a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Medical malpractice can affect anyone

Those who require medical treatment or undergo surgical procedures are sometimes bedridden and may be unable to care for themselves as they normally would. It is the job of nurses and other medical staff to provide patients with the proper treatment and care to aid in recovery. However, nurses in Kentucky are often understaffed and in a rush to see patients, which can cause them to leave some duties unfulfilled. Victims and families may pursue legal action through a medical malpractice claim when neglect causes injuries or death.

Any mistake made during a surgical procedure can mean permanent injuries and even death for patients.
