Northwest Indiana Emergency Room Errors
Attorneys for ER Malpractice & 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 window of time, 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
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. Our Northwest Indiana medical malpractice attorneys have handled emergency room error suits involving everything from staffing issues and inadequate training to failure to recognize a heart attack or stroke.
