Failure to Diagnose legal definition: Failure to diagnose is a form of medical malpractice committed by a doctor who fails to provide an accurate or timely diagnosis. Failure to diagnose can cause serious damage and even death to patients who do not receive prompt and adequate medical care as needed due to delayed or improper diagnosis. If a doctor fails to order the appropriate tests, follow up on warning signs, or provide adequate care, it can lead to the unnecessary suffering of patients.
