The Fault of Diagnosis in Pathology is Not Necessarily the Gross Medical Defect
The patient’s husband and father complained of the pathologist’s miss diagnosis of the patient’s skin, and required a compensation for it. The plaintiffs had burden of proof, because there was no gross medical defect in this case. The physician and the pathologist have diagnosed the patient according to the medical standards. Even though the pathologist has had a fault during the diagnosing, it might not necessarily be regarded as gross medical defect only due to not seeking for a second opinion.
