Emergency Room Error

When you go to an emergency room to receive help for an injury or other medical emergency you are doing so out of a sense of urgency, and expect a medical professional to effectively take care of you. However, emergency room errors are common.

If ER staff does not taking the complaints of a patient seriously enough, lets a patient wait too long or does not communicate properly with other staff, a mistake can be made that could lead to further injury, suffering or even wrongful death. The incidents that can lead to emergency room error include:

  • Failure to treat medical condition

  • Misdiagnosis

  • Failure to treat blood clot or pulmonary embolism

  • Medication errors

  • Failure to diagnose cancer and other illnesses

  • Failure to treat heart attack or stroke

  • Misreading a medical chart or lab test
