WHAT IS A FAILURE TO DIAGNOSE APPENDICITIS?

Failure to diagnose appendicitis is a form of medical malpractice in which a doctor fails to take the proper steps to determine that a patient’s appendix is inflamed and at risk of rupturing.  When a doctor or other health care provider fails to diagnose appendicitis, it can result in serious injury to the patient, including death.  There are certain things a doctor should do, and certain clinical and medical information that a doctor should obtain, in order to properly diagnose and care for a patient that may have appendicitis.
