The 12 Most Common Lawsuit Diagnoses

I just stumbled on a study by The Doctors Company, a big malpractice insurer, looking at 332 closed claims against ED physicians. MOST of these cases were from missed or delayed diagnosis, and statistically, it was TWELVE diagnoses that made up the majority of these.

So, in the musical spirit of Christmas,  my gift to you is the most high yield, medicolegal, differential diagnosis that exists In the world…

Happy Holidays!
