Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist and Cone Health Misdiagnosis Lawsuits: What to Know and What to Do Next

  • Neuropathy (dysfunction such as numbness or weakness in their hands and feet) that is likely permanent
  • Physical trauma such as hair loss, foggy memory, and other side effects
  • An unnecessary chemo port
  • Mental trauma such as anxiety and depression
  • Some may have also undergone unnecessary mastectomies

How Did This Mass Misdiagnosis Happen?

Some of the people who were misdiagnosed were told it was due to lab errors. Original testing diagnosed victims as having HER2 Positive breast cancer. In reality, they had HER2 Negative breast cancer, which may not require chemotherapy.

We are investigating why this happened, who is at fault, and how widespread these terrible errors may have been.

Tragically, this is not the first time Wake Forest Baptist has misdiagnosed cancer patients due to “lab errors.” In 2018, patients were improperly treated for cancer they didn’t have. At least one woman underwent a needless double mastectomy because of Wake Forest Baptist’s “lab error.” In the current case, we believe Atrium Wake Forest Baptist may have attempted to sweep these errors under the rug by offering to settle claims when patients did not have legal counsel.

How Did the Affected People Discover the Misdiagnosis?

Some patients were only told about the incorrect diagnosis years after their treatment was already completed. Some patients are reporting that they were ushered in to speak to the Wake Forest Baptist’s Risk Management team immediately after receiving the horrendous news.
