Spinal Abscess Treatment Delays & Diagnosis Errors

Spinal abscess (also known as an epidural abscess) can be a very painful condition and requires urgent and prompt treatment. Spinal abscess errors and mistreatment may arise where there has been a failure in carrying out catheterisation or an epidural injection, a delay in diagnosis and errors during treatment.

Types of Spinal Abscess Treatment Delays & Diagnosis Errors

Healthcare professionals owe a duty of care to provide appropriate treatment in a timely manner depending on the urgency of the condition. Regretfully in some instances, spinal abscess errors may arise. Examples can include:

  • A delay in diagnosing symptoms such as loss of bowel and bladder control, high temperature, pain in the lower back, hip, leg, shoulder and arms and paralysis
  • Failures in treating spinal abscess as an emergency case
  • Incomplete draining of a spinal abscess during treatment resulting in spinal scarring 
  • Errors and failures during a spinal epidural or spinal catheterisation procedure
  • A delay in treating spinal abscess resulting in spinal compression
  • A failure or delay in treating a spinal infection resulting in a spinal abscess
  • And other spinal abscess errors

Such errors may result in serious complications such as paralysis, loss of sensation, loss of bowel and bladder function, impotence in men and even extensive spinal surgery. If you or a loved one has been affected by a spinal abscess error or mistreatment which has prolonged or exacerbated the condition, or has resulted in the death of a loved one, Mistreatment.com may be able to assist.
