PTSD Goes Undiagnosed at Army Medical Center
A disturbing trend surfaced at Madigan Army Medical Center, in Washington, recently. Doctors in cases of possible PTSD changed diagnoses for unknown reasons. Now, after conducting a review, the Army has determined that 150 men and women went untreated while suffering from PTSD.
As reported by Adam Ashton of The Olympian, in Olympia, WA, this lack of a diagnosis affects not only the treatment but also the disability payments and benefits associated with a soldier with PTSD.
Former patients can also have their cases reviewed to ensure they were properly diagnosed.
