Medical Malpractice: Emergency Room Negligence

When you are most in need, you put trust in doctors, nurses and medical staff to help you in an emergency situation. It is a medical professional's duty to provide care with the utmost responsibility and with attention to detail. They are required to act fast, under pressure and look out for a patient's best interests. When someone does not adhere to the duties of their job, an innocent person can suffer the consequences.

Serving The Victims Of Emergency Room Negligence

Medical malpractice in the form of emergency room errors occurs all too often. With hospital employees understaffed and overworked, many different negligence errors can occur. These can cause injuries and illnesses that could have been prevented with proper care. Common forms of negligence occur because of the following situations:

  • Medication errors
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Falls while at the hospital
  • Premature discharge
  • Failure to monitor the patient's condition
