Lawsuit claims VA provider failed to diagnose man’s cancer

Those in Kew Gardens who go to hospitals and healthcare clinics looking to see what might be ailing them no doubt believe in the diagnoses that their clinicians give to them. However, what is often lost in the desire to trust in the skills and expertise of healthcare providers is the fact that they are only human. This makes them subject to both errors in judgment as well as the temptation to allow other factors to influence their decision-making.

A judge recently awarded an Arizona man a $2.5 million award stemming from a medical malpractice lawsuit. The man, a veteran, discovered that he had advanced prostate cancer 11 months after having received an initial exam. His lawsuit alleges that the initial review did reveal abnormalities with his prostate, yet the nurse practitioner from the local VA facility failed to order any follow-up tests.

This case is the first to come forth after a local VA providers were discovered to be involved in the keeping of secret waiting lists of veterans seeking treatment who were made subject to scheduling delays. It is the stated hope of the plaintiff in this case that his outcome will help bring awareness to the plight of his fellow veterans.

Many may understand that doctors and other healthcare providers make errors from time to time. What is difficult to comprehend, however, is the thought of patients being made to wait for necessary treatment for any purpose whatsoever. Those who suffer because of having their treatment intentionally delayed by healthcare providers may feel justified in bringing action if such practices ever come to light. Those who do so may be wise to enlist the services of an experienced attorney.
