Patient Misidentification

With so many healthcare providers involved in the care of hospital patients, patient mix ups occur more commonly than one would expect. Patient misidentification can lead to catastrophic injury or death under the following circumstances:


  • Administration of the wrong medication to the patient


  • Laboratory mix-up of biopsy samples or blood specimens from different patients


  • Providing the diagnosis of one patient to another patient and proceeding with treatment on the wrong patient


  • Performing surgery on the wrong patient



If you or a family member have suffered a catastrophic injury or loss due to medical malpractice, contact Bill Maddix, a Minnesota medical malpractice lawyer, for a free consultation.
