Misinterpretation of test results can have massive consequences for you, your healthcare and health prognosis as a whole. It may be that the misinterpretation of test results has resulted in you being given incorrect or inappropriate treatment, that the error has caused you to become more ill, or worse, caused you further, preventable health problems.
All of these scenarios, and many others, can be a direct consequence of a misinterpretation of test results, and therefore, such mistakes by medical professionals are very serious indeed.
