Rheumatology Diagnosis & Treatment Errors

It is the duty of rheumatologists to prevent rheumatic diseases. The treatment they provide requires a high level of efficiency and competency however, there are instances where these standards are not upheld and can cause further injury to you or a loved one. Examples may include a delay in diagnosis and errors resulting from surgery.  

Types of Rheumatology Diagnosis & Treatment Errors

Where specialised medical treatment is not applied effectively many errors can occur. Such errors may include:

  • A delay in diagnosing and treating Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Mismanagement of Osteoarthritis
  • A delay in diagnosing and treating Scleroderma
  • Failing to diagnosing and treating Lupus
  • And other rheumatology errors 

Osteoporosis or Lupus patients may suffer from unnecessary fractures or bone collapse. Where expert surgical technique is not utilised injuries can be caused resulting in further surgery, for example:

  • Misaligned bones
  • Incorrect placing of metal work
  • Incorrect screw size  
  • Nerve damage
  • And other rheumatology injuries 

If you or a loved one has been affected by rheumatology errors in a hospital resulting in further injury, surgery or pain and suffering, Mistreatment.com may be able to assist.
