It Is Your Physician's Job To Look For Signs Of A Stroke

As one of the leading causes of death in the Ohio, strokes are sometimes, but not always, preventable. With cardiovascular disease affecting much of the population, physicians and health care providers have an obligation to watch for and monitor signs of the conditions that may increase the risk of stroke, such as high blood pressure, tobacco use, poor nutrition, obesity, high cholesterol, atrial fibrillation, cerebral aneurysm, carotid artery stenosis (a major risk for ischemic stroke) and diabetes.

While physicians cannot bear all of the responsibility for the health of their patients, physicians do make errors in judgment or treatment that result in a needless negative outcome for a patient. In the case of a stroke, the negative outcome could include permanent paralysis, cognitive disability and even death.

If a patient has symptoms of a stroke — such as disorientation, slurred speech or a serious headache — the doctor has a responsibility to fully consider and investigate the complaint. If an emergency room doctor or primary care physician fails to conduct a differential diagnosis and other tests, they may be guilty of negligence and medical malpractice.
