Tampa Medical Malpractice Lawyer Discusses a Claim Against an ER Doctor for Failure to Diagnose
People often have the question as to 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 to your doctor who knows more about you.
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 doesn’t have that obligation, he only has the obligation to diagnose and treat emergent emergency type conditions.
