Failure to Diagnose Meningitis
Oregon Medical Misdiagnosis Attorneys
Meningitis is a potentially fatal disease that can be treated effectively if diagnosed efficiently and treated appropriately. Because of the rapid nature of the symptoms, many people afflicted with disease go to the emergency room or an after-hours clinic for treatment. Emergency medical technicians and doctors must be quick to diagnose the illness and fast to respond with appropriate treatment for the high fever, before stroke or organ failure sets in.
