Emergency Room Errors

Compelling advocates for justice when emergency room errors cause harm

Emergency rooms are hectic places where medical professionals must take quick action based on an assessment of a person’s injuries after he or she is rushed to the hospital. Doctors, registered nurses and physician assistants working in emergency rooms see high volumes of patients within a relatively small window of time, and errors happen despite the best intentions of those working. Some of the most common emergency room errors are:

  • Medication errors
  • Misdiagnoses or failure to diagnose
  • Delayed treatment or failure to treat
  • Failure to consult with proper doctors
  • Failure to order necessary tests
  • Nursing negligence
  • Paperwork errors or failure to keep medical records
  • Laboratory errors
  • Failure to follow up after a patient is discharged

You have the right to file suit if an error in the emergency room resulted in serious or life-threatening health complications for you or a loved one.
