Emergency Room Malpractice Attorneys
The emergency room (ER) 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 ERs.
As long as the patient eventually receives the proper care, which usually involves hospital admission for further testing and treatment, the errors in the ER are often of little consequence. However, when the patient is improperly triaged or discharged from the ER and is told that there is nothing wrong, or the diagnosis of the significant problem is delayed, overlooked or missed, the initial medical errors in an ER can have significant consequences.
