Emergency Room Errors

Types of Malpractice in the Emergency Room

People go to an emergency room for a variety of injuries and illness symptoms, such as broken bones, lacerations, chest pain, and labored breathing. These conditions have the potential to be very serious, and they can be made more serious by a medical professional in the E.R. who commits an error in their diagnosing or treatment. Such errors can be made in all stages of emergency room care, including:

  • Triage - Failing to correctly note and assess the person's symptoms, or making the person wait for hours before being able to see a doctor
  • Diagnostics - Failing to ask the proper questions and order necessary tests or blood work
  • Diagnosis/treatment - Failing to identify a potentially life-threatening illness or condition
  • Referral - Failing to call in a specialist when needed, or failing to refer the patient to the proper specialist
  • Discharge - Sending a person home who should be admitted for treatment or observation

If you or a loved one has suffered injury or illness due to an error made in the emergency room, contact a Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorney who can assist you in seeking malpractice compensation.
