Every missed HIV diagnosis is a failure of care


The title of this article is chilling. "Failure of care" suggests medical negligence, with all that that implies. If the sore throat I saw last month turns out to be an HIV patient should I be sued?? I'm all in favour of increasing diagnosis, but not with the dark threat of medico-legal hell.
