Hold Doctors Responsible for Emergency Room Errors
Emergency rooms are busy places where medical professionals such as doctors, registered nurses, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners, all must be trained to quickly assess a person’s injuries and provide appropriate treatment. Emergency room healthcare providers work under an enormous amount of pressure as they diagnose, treat, and release patients. However, they have a duty to provide every patient with accurate and necessary treatment to avoid future complications. Failure to do so is a form of medical malpractice. You are entitled to seek compensation for any damages an emergency room doctor’s negligence has caused.
Emergency room negligence can take many forms, such as:
- Delayed Treatment or Failure to Treat
- Failure to Appropriately Assess Patient Charts
- Failure to Detect Complications
- Failure to Admit / Improper Discharge
- Failure to Follow Up After Discharge
- Failure to Consult with Proper Doctors
- Improper Monitoring
- Laboratory Errors
- Medication Errors
- Nursing Negligence
- Paperwork Errors
- Radiology Interpretation Errors
- Surgical Errors
