Patients in Massachusetts and elsewhere likely trust their medical professionals to properly diagnose and treat them. While it may not always be an easy and perfect process, medical professionals are educated and trained to properly care for their patients. Unfortunately, doctors are human too, which means human errors could occur. A step could be missed, a symptom overlooked, results misread or wrong labs ordered. These errors could become more significant if a medical professional is overworked and running on very little sleep. A patient could be misdiagnosed, undergoing the wrong treatment plan or even having unnecessary surgery. This could have significant and even fatal impact on the patient.
