How Does Medical Malpractice Failure to Diagnose Work with Regard to Emergency Room Doctors in Tampa Florida?
People often question whether or not they have a claim, when an emergency medical provider fails to diagnose their condition. The answer to that question is that the standard of care that applies to an emergency provider is different than your doctor. Your doctor knows more about you and it is an emergency medical provider’s obligation to treat emergency medical conditions. You may often leave the emergency room without a diagnosis and be given instructions to return to your medical provider. So an emergency medical provider may not diagnose you and does not have that obligation. The emergency provider only has the obligation to diagnose and treat emergent emergency type conditions.
