Medical Malpractice In The Emergency Room

A visit to the emergency room can sometimes be associated with a traumatic event outside of the hospital. But if a patient is misdiagnosed or improper treatment is given to the patient, the situation can go from bad to worse. If you or a loved one was injured as a result of an emergency room error or negligence, you should seek the advice of a knowledgeable attorney.

Common Reasons For ER Mistakes

The emergency room is often a hub of frantic activity. On any given day or night, people come in for minor illnesses and injuries, major traumas, accidents and myriad other reasons. It is the job and duty of the medical team in the ER to be ready and prepared for any situation — but sometimes they fail. Some of the most common reasons for medical malpractice occurring in the emergency room include:

  • Lack of staff training
  • Understaffing
  • Inadequate facilities
  • Delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis
  • Failure to monitor patients
  • Exposure to bacteria and viruses
  • Errors in medication, including overdose
  • Failure to correctly read an X-ray
  • Laboratory mistakes
