Q: Can I sue a hospital?

I went to the emergency room in Clarksdale Thursday night for vomiting, etc. I went to emergency room in Oxford Friday night for the same thing and they diagnosed me with colitis and said it was very visible and don't see how Clarksdale missed it.

Peter N. Munsing answered on Jul 9, 2016

Not in this case. Not all misdiagnoses are malpractice. More importantly, the couple of days delay didn't create a harm that wasn't there--and so no case (you don't get to sue for what could have happened).;
