The Role of Negligence in Emergency Room Injuries

When a preventable emergency room error occurs, patients suffer needlessly. Some examples are:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Misinterpretation of test results
  • Failure to consult a specialist
  • Medication errors
  • Delays in treatment
  • Wrongful discharge

By definition, many patients who are seen in the emergency room are at risk of serious complications if their conditions are not properly diagnosed and treated. Too many patients are given the wrong treatment or even sent home. When that happens, serious and even fatal complications can follow.
