Errors in the Emergency Room
In the fast-paced environment of an emergency room, mistakes will happen. However, when medical professionals fail to provide an accepted standard of care, it is a case of medical malpractice.
Emergency room errors can take many forms, including:
- Failure to diagnose illness
- Untreated infections
- Medication errors
- Giving the wrong type of blood
- Failure to monitor
Many emergency room errors are the result of understaffing, as there are simply not enough trained personnel to handle the influx of patients. It is the hospital's responsibility to ensure it has adequate resources to treat patients with medical emergencies. Our lawyers have the skill and experience to investigate the causes of emergency room errors and to pursue maximum compensation for our clients.
