Laboratory Mistake or Error
Medical Lab Error Attorneys in Fresno
Medical laboratories perform and analyze millions of tissue specimens, biopsies, and blood samples every year. Both doctors and other health care professionals rely on these tests to better diagnose and treat the medical conditions of their patients. However, accurate medical testing is a complicated process and relies on all medical professionals involved to follow strict protocol in the collection, transportation, organization, and analysis of tissue samples. Unfortunately, there are many things that can go wrong during any step of the process, and often these errors result in a laboratory mistake. Medical lab errors often occur for some of the following reasons:
- Incorrectly drawn blood or biopsy of tissue
- Mislabeled specimens
- Mishandled specimens or images
- Misinterpreted results
- Patient information and data miscommunication
- Identification errors
It has been estimated that there are about 2.9 million laboratory mistakes every year in the United States. Laboratory mistakes can have devastating consequences for patients who are
misdiagnosed as a result- ranging from emotional trauma to unnecessary surgery and
blood transfusion injuries.
