Can I file a Michigan medical malpractice lawsuit if the hospital failed to diagnose a stroke in the emergency room?

Yes, you may be able to file a Michigan medical malpractice lawsuit if a hospital failed to diagnose a stroke in the emergency room. The medical staff at a Michigan hospital should take all appropriate measures based upon the patient history and presentation of the patient’s symptoms to determine whether the patient is having a stroke.

A hospital’s emergency room may fail to identify a stroke because its major symptoms are also shared by other serious medical conditions. Common symptoms consistent with a stroke include a severe headache, one-sided weakness or paralysis, facial drooping, memory impairment, unintelligible speech, impaired vision, and problems with reading and writing. However, the emergency room should be properly trained to identify symptoms and every patient should be carefully evaluated and tested for the condition before being discharged from the Michigan hospital.
