Lumbar Puncture Diagnosis Errors & Treatment Delays

A lumbar puncture is often required to diagnose certain conditions that affect the brain and spinal cord such as meningitis, subarachnoid haemorrhage and Guillain-Barré syndrome. Lumbar puncture errors may occur where there has been a delay in providing the procedure or errors made during the procedure having an adverse effect on the patient’s physical health.

Types of Lumbar Puncture Diagnosis Errors & Treatment Delays 

Whilst neurologists provide a high standard of care, there are instances where the necessary care and treatment is delayed or not carried out to the required standard. Examples of lumbar puncture errors and negligence include:

  • A delay in performing lumbar puncture surgery
  • Damage to the spinal cord or brain during the procedure
  • Errors during lumbar puncture surgery resulting in severe nerve injury
  • Excessive force used during surgical procedures 
  • Negligence due to numerous failed attempts in inserting the needle 
  • Insertion of the needle in the wrong part of the spine
  • And any other lumbar puncture errors 

Such errors can hinder the recovery of a patient and even result in further injury, surgery, exacerbation of a medical condition or even death. If you or a loved one has suffered from lumbar puncture errors, we are here to help.
