Emergency Room Errors

Did an ER mistake cause your injury?

Unfortunately, emergency rooms are characterized by chaos, crowding and waiting. Often, patients go to the emergency room only to be discharged shortly after. Patients with serious medical conditions can be misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all, and then later suffer serious injury due to emergency room doctor oversight. The chaos of an emergency room can also contribute to mix-up in patient charts, leading to the wrong procedure or an incorrect diagnosis being given to the wrong patient. There are a number of things that can go wrong in the ER. If you or a loved one suffered because of ER oversight, then a San Diego medical malpractice lawyer from our firm could help.

Medical malpractice lawsuits arising out of emergency room errors cost hospitals an estimated $1 billion every year. A common cause of these emergency room mistakes is missing information. Patients arrive without an appointment, leaving doctors with little time to gather the necessary medical history and patient reports. It is crucial that doctors obtain all the medical records on their patient possible before treating or diagnosing them in the ER. Failure to do so can lead to serious consequences. Poor communication can also lead to mistakes. Doctors, nurses and other medical personnel must all communicate to avoid unnecessary oversight.
