Emergency room mistakes can be fatal
A person seeking help in a hospital’s emergency room (ER) does so out of urgency. People who visit the ER expect their injuries and/or ailments to be treated promptly and effectively. Emergency room patients expect a high standard of care and professionalism from ER staff and medical personnel. However, because of the highly stressful nature of their occupation, emergency room staff are constantly under a lot of pressure. This pressure often leads to medical mistakes and errors in the emergency room. Misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, erroneous reading of a medical chart or lab test, and failure to treat a heart attack are all common ER mistakes. Such mistakes can be severely hazardous and may even result in wrongful death. If you or a loved one has suffered injury as a result of an emergency room mistake, the ER staff responsible for your damages needs to be held accountable.
