New York, New York
Man who was misdiagnosed with HIV suing for compensation
Residents of New York are taking note of the case of a military veteran who was misdiagnosed as HIV-positive nine years ago. The alleged doctor error was discovered when a man sought confirmation of hsi diagnosis as part of his application for veterans benefits.
The 43-year-old veteran has filed a lawsuit against several organizations, including the University of Kentucky Medical Center and the Fayette County Health Department. He received the initial diagnosis that he was HIV-positive in 2004. However, because an HIV test he had taken earlier came back as negative, a third test was ordered. Although the final test did not show that he was HIV-positive, doctors did not inform the man of this result.
The error was discovered when the Veterans Administration requested a copy of the tests the man had received confirming his AIDS diagnosis. Instead of finding confirmation that he had HIV, the search revealed no test results showing he was in fact HIV=positive. The lawsuit maintains that the man was not treated to the standard of care. continue reading ...

Kentucky Medical Malpractice
Lawsuit Claims Misdiagnosis of HIV
Imagine being told that you are HIV-
positive and then living with the stigma
of HIV and taking the HIV drug cocktail
known as HAART ("highly active antiretroviral therapy") in order to prolong your life before being told eight years later that you had been misdiagnosed as having HIV. That is what a 43-year0old Kentucky man endured before finally beingtold in August 2012 that confirmatory HIV testing was never done and that his HIV diagnosis in 2004 was wrong (an infectious disease specialist advised him in December 2012 that no one had ever performed the required confirmatory testing regarding his HIV status).
If you or a loved one were misdiagnosed with HIV (told that you were HIV positive when you were not), you should promply seek the legal advice of a local medical malpractice attorney in your state who may investigate your medical malpractice claim for you and represent you in a malpractice lawsuit, if appropriate.
