Failure To Diagnose a Pulmonary Embolism Results In Death in DC
In this D.C. medical malpractice case, a local hospital and HMO failed to diagnose a pulmonary embolism, or blood clot, despite repeated signs and symptoms. The HMO doctors didn't formulate an appropriate differential diagnosis - something physicians are taught in medical school - because they didn't put the "worst" first. In a differential diagnosis, the doctor is supposed to put the most dangerous condition at the top (in this case pulmonary embolism) and rule it out before going to the next possible diagnosis on the the list.
