Failure to Diagnose Bowel Obstruction

Misdiagnosis Attorneys Taking On All Types of Malpractice Claims A bowel obstruction prevents the small and large intestine from discharging bodily waste. Patients with obstructed bowels can have any number of symptoms, including abdominal pain, a bloated abdomen, vomiting, constipation or diarrhea. Bowel obstructions can have any number of causes, including tumors or scar tissue.However the obstruction is caused, doctors faced with a patient who presents symptoms of bowel obstruction must take immediate and decisive action. Surgery is generally required to alleviate this condition. The failure to treat a bowel obstruction can cause perforation of the bowel, which can quickly lead to sepsis (blood infection) and death. When doctors fail to conduct appropriate tests or miss obvious symptoms, people with obstructed bowels may die or suffer life-altering injuries.
