Emergency rooms are very fast paced, stressful environments. The patients who seek emergency room care have often suffered serious, potentially life threatening injuries or illnesses. As a result, emergency room staff must be able to think quickly in order to make the proper assessments and decisions that will save these patients.
It is easy to see how a mistake can be made under such extreme circumstances. While emergency room staff is highly trained to handle these situations and generally do so with tremendous success, there are certain situations where people working in an emergency room get careless and make an error that results in serious injury to the patient.
Common emergency room errors include:
- Anesthesia errors
- Surgical errors
- Failure to diagnose
- Medication errors
- Failure to treat a patient
- Unsanitary practices
- Failure to monitor a patient
These emergency room errors constitute medical malpractice. If you have suffered an injury as a result of an emergency room error, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your damages.
