Failure to Diagnose Osteomyelitis – Wrong Diagnosis of Osteomyelitis


People who have osteomyelitis have a bone infection. An osteomyelitis bone infection can become quite serious, as any infection in the body can travel through the bloodstream, only to infect and damage other organs. An infection in the bone areas can weaken the bones and expose them to viruses, bacteria and germs.

If you have osteomyelitis, it needs to be diagnosed correctly and fast. A doctor needs to diagnose osteomyelitis to be able to successfully treat this condition. Generally, if you have osteomyelitis, you will need to have a surgical procedure to remove any dead bone in the body.

Symptoms of Osteomyelitis

In the case that you are suffering from osteomyelitis, you may experience many different symptoms. The symptoms of osteomyelitis include:

  • Fever and high body temperatures
  • Swelling in the infection region of the body
  • Pain
  • Fatigue

Often osteomyelitis does not have any definite signs, and a person can live with the condition without knowing it. For this reason, any time that you experience bone pain or inflammation with a fever, it is important to be seen by a healthcare provider for that condition to rule out osteomyelitis. If you have had a bone infection from osteomyelitis, you need to call our law office today to talk to our attorneys. Just call us at the DTLA Law Group right now.

Failure to Treat – Resulting in Amputation

The condition of osteomyelitis can occur from the staphylococcus bacteria or other types of germs passed between people. If any amount of bacteria gets into your bones, it can do damage to the bone structure of your body. Bacteria finds a way to infiltrate bones through:

  • An injury such as a puncture wound near a site of germs
  • Germs from one part of the body traveling to another part of the body in the bloodstream
  • Surgical procedures where bacteria are introduced by accident to the person’s body

Any time that you are injured by a germ or bacteria and are infected while in the hospital. It is called a hospital-acquired infection. You will need extra days in the hospital because of contracting a hospital-acquired infection while having a surgery scheduled there at the hospital. Also, any time that bacteria damage the bones, there can be circulation disorders that will develop to further damage the bone, or require an amputation of the limb affected by the bacteria.
