Inadequate Diagnoses medical definition: Inadequate diagnoses happen when a doctor or healthcare provider makes the wrong diagnosis regarding a patient’s medical condition or makes the correct diagnosis after an unacceptable delay. Either way, both of these scenarios do not allow the patient a timely or accurate diagnosis, which may make his or her illness more difficult to treat.
