Causes of Emergency Room Negligence
Emergency rooms must be adequately staffed to handle the volume of patients coming through. In many cases, emergency room errors are the result of understaffing, as there are simply too few people to do too many jobs. This can result in medical professionals rushing to keep up with the pace, or performing jobs they are not adequately trained to do.
Examples of emergency room errors include:
- Failure to diagnose
- Untreated infections
- IV errors
- Giving contaminated blood
- Medication errors
- Failure to monitor a patient's condition
Our attorneys apply a thorough approach to every medical malpractice case we handle. We will carefully review all aspects of the case to determine if and how negligence contributed to your injury. We will use our skill and experience to help you pursue compensation for your medical bills, wage loss, pain and suffering, and other losses.
