Causes of Delayed Treatment
In emergency situations and with some medical conditions, timely treatment is essential. Unfortunately, delayed treatment is all too common in Chicago hospitals and doctor offices. The dangers of delayed treatment can be manifold, and might affect the current and future health of patients to a detrimental extent. The attorneys of the Disparti Law Group, believe that patients should know what leads to delayed treatment, as well as what their legal options are should they be adversely affected by those delays.
Common Causes of Delayed Treatment
One might think that because of the risks associated with delaying medical treatment for numerous conditions, this behavior would be avoided at all costs. However, delays still occur, often due to one or more of the following:
- Failure to perform tests
- Failure to adequately analyze tests
- Failure to assess the severity of a situation
- Distracting work environment
- Hospital negligence
These conditions could all cause a serious delay in a patient’s receipt of medical treatment. Sadly, numerous Chicago patients suffer from this type of medical negligence, and many develop additional health complications or worsening conditions as a result. In addition to a slower physical recovery, a significant financial strain can easily accumulate. However, a Chicago medical malpractice attorney may be able to help.
