Infection Diagnosis & Treatment Delays

Failure to treat certain infections can result in life threatening illness, further injury and sometimes death. Post-surgical infections, meningitis, urinary tract infections, eye infections, cellulitis septicaemia and other serious infections require prompt attention and treatment to minimise the risk of further damage or a prolonged recovery period for the patient. 

Types of Infection Diagnosis & Treatment Delays

Usually GPs are the first point of contact for patients when concerned about an infection, therefore it is important that they provide a high level of efficiency and care when assessing the severity of an infection. However errors in the management of infections can occur including:

  • A failure to diagnose and treat the infection
  • Misinterprets tests results
  • Failure to carry out the correct tests
  • Incorrect prescription of  medication causing the infection to worsen
  • Where a GP fails to recognise the severity of the patient’s symptoms
  • Failure to immediately refer the patient to hospital
  • And other infection errors 

If you or a loved one has been affected by an infection error which has prolonged or exacerbated a medical condition, or has resulted in the death of a loved one, Mistreatment.com may be able to assist.
