How does a failure to diagnose impact you?

The failure to diagnose an illness or disease can have disastrous effects on you and your family. To make matters worse, diagnostic errors are more expensive and damaging than errors in treatment, according to a report from Johns Hopkins Medicine. Let's take a look at how failure to diagnose can impact you in today's post.

First and foremost, a missed or mistaken diagnosis will likely cost you thousands of dollars in medical care. You will need to spend money to see other doctors, undergo extensive testing and possibly undergo surgery and other types of treatment in an effort to return you to a healthy life.

You may also be unable to work. Depending on the severity of your illness or disease, you might have to stop working completely so you can focus on treatment. Even if you miss work for a short period, you may have trouble paying your bills.

Failure to diagnose also impacts your family life. There will be a strain placed on your spouse, who might have to care for your children without your help because of your illness. Your children will have to see you struggle to stay healthy.

If you are not diagnosed properly, it can lead to a ripple effect throughout your life. There's the possibility that you could go into debt if you cannot work or cannot find work that pays the same as your previous job.

The failure to diagnose an illness or disease will have a lasting impact on your life and the lives of your family members. You will miss time at work, struggle to pay the bills, might wind up in debt and will require extensive medical care until the situation is resolved (if it isn't too late).
