Emergency Room Error
Emergency rooms are chaotic by nature, requiring the utmost care and attention by medical professionals to ensure mistakes aren’t made. However, like any professional, medical staff make mistakes every day—but their mistakes can have life-altering consequences, leaving expert legal teams to hold them accountable and deliver justice to their patients.
Common Emergency Room Errors
Emergency rooms are staffed by over-worked physicians who are rushed to diagnose illnesses and move on to the next patient, a dangerous practice that leads to incorrect diagnoses.
Because patients are rushed through the emergency room, they aren’t given the opportunity to ask questions about their diagnosis. An emergency room error victim may not even be aware that they’ve been given an incorrect diagnosis until their condition worsens.
Common injuries missed by emergency rooms include:
- Brain Aneurysm
- Internal Bleeding
- Bone Fractures
- Spinal Cord Injuries
