Diagnostic Error and Patient Safety

Diagnostic error is one of the most important safety problems in health care and leads to the most harm. Diagnostic error can be defined as a diagnosis that is missed, wrong, or delayed. The potential harm from diagnostic errors could range from no harm to significant harm, including morbidity or death. Diagnostic Errors can be harmful because they can prevent or delay appropriate treatment, lead to unnecessary or harmful treatment, or result in psychological or financial repercussions.
