A&E Missed My Cauda Equina Syndrome

A&E Missed My Cauda Equina Syndrome And Medical Negligence ClaimsIf you attend your GP or A&E unit with advanced symptoms of cauda equina syndrome, it may be too late for surgery to bring about much recovery of function. If your symptoms are at an earlier stage, however, a failure to make an emergency referral can lead to a compensation claim.

Spotting the symptoms of cauda equina syndrome

Attending A&E with symptoms of cauda equina syndrome can be a medical emergency.

If you attend the hospital with some or all of the following symptoms, you may be developing cauda equina syndrome and may need emergency surgery:

If you are experiencing these symptoms but still have some control of your bladder and some sensation of needing to urinate, you may require an emergency MRI scan in order to confirm the cause of your symptoms.

You may be developing cauda equina syndrome and a delay in carrying out surgery may allow the compression of your cauda equina nerves to increase to the point where you are less likely to recover any of your lost function.

The impact of delay

If your symptoms are not recognised and surgery is delayed due to a lack of diagnosis, there is a possibility that your condition will deteriorate.

If you develop complete cauda equina syndrome, surgery may bring about little improvement and you may be left doubly incontinent, sexually dysfunctional and with mobility problems.

Compensation for delay

If you have deteriorated from incomplete to complete cauda equina syndrome due to a delay in diagnosing your symptoms, you may wish to consider making a claim for compensation.

If a patient alerts the medical profession to their red flag symptoms and their condition could have been treated more promptly, the relevant medical professionals may be considered to have been negligent in their care.
