Routine visits to the doctor usually don’t yield bad news or results. But sometimes the doctor comes back with something unexpected, possibly even scary. When you get a diagnosis your whole life changes. You now have to reorganize how you do everything, from what you eat to your daily activities. Being diagnosed with an illness or a certain disease is not necessarily the end of the world – depending on the ailment. However, being wrongly diagnosed and treated for an illness or disease can be more detrimental to your health. Unfortunately, this happens quite often. In most cases, the mistake is not really a mistake, but trial and error, with no real damage to the person due to treatment. But in some cases, the results can be severe, even fatal.

Medical malpractice can cause injuries as early as childbirth. Some injuries include brain injuries, cerebral palsy, fractured bones, etc. But, these injuries can also be caused by something other than medical malpractice. It just depends on the situation.
Medication errors are common when doctors are dealing with patients. However, a medical error by a few milligrams usually is not enough to cause any damage to the person. But being prescribed the wrong type of medication can have grave results in some cases. Many people have died because they were either prescribed the wrong medication, or the dosage was so far off it had adverse effects on them.
Always tell your doctor the truth, no matter how embarrassed you may feel. Lying to your doctor about your habits or even your weight or age seems like no big deal, but it can cause serious issues if you are having a procedure that utilizes anesthesia. Anesthesia has to be administered precisely. Any slight miscalculation could have negative effects on the patient. Admitting your age, or that you smoke is a small price to pay when dealing with something as finicky as anesthesia.
