Newman-Toker DE, Moy E, Valente E, Coffey R, Hines AL. Diagnosis. 2014;1:155-166.
This observational study identified patients who visited the emergency department within 30 days prior to astroke diagnosis. Nearly 13% of patients had a potential missed diagnosis, and more than 1% had a probable missed diagnosis of stroke. This study illustrates a novel approach to characterizing the incidence of missed diagnosis, an important and understudied patient safety problem.
