Medical Malpractice: Emergency Room Malpractice
The emergency room of almost any hospital is becoming an area where medical errors are common and often overlooked. Because of the increasing load of patients and the need to prioritize or "triage" patients by order of medical urgency, many things can and do go wrong in emergency rooms.
As long as the patient eventually receives the proper care, which usually involves admission in the hospital for further testing and treatment, the errors in emergency room are often of little consequence. However, when the patient is improperly discharged from the emergency room and told that there is nothing wrong, or when the diagnosis of the significant problem is overlooked or missed, the initial medical errors in an emergency room can have significant consequences.
