The failure of a medical professional to correctly note down a patient's information can lead to either serious injuries or conditions and even loss of life. Despite several advancements in technology, transcription is still an imperfect science as software cannot discern accents and unique speech patterns. On the other hand, transcriptions done by individuals are subject to human errors. Whether it is software or a human error, the stake is always considerably high in medical field, where a transcription mistake could result in a career-ending malpractice lawsuit and even death of the patient.
Sharron Juno's case is a standing example of transcription failure. Being a diabetic, Sharron went to a care facility that lacked access to medical records and relied upon a summary dictated by the physician treating her at a hospital. While the physician instructed 8 units of insulin, the transcription service noted 80 units. This lethal dose of insulin resulted in Sharron's death just two weeks later, and the hospital was sued for $140 million.
