Northwest Indiana Emergency Room Errors
Attorneys For ER Malpractice And Mistakes
Northwest Indiana emergency rooms (ERs) 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 time window, and errors may happen despite a nurse or doctor’s best intentions. Some of the most common emergency room errors include:
- 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
