Injuries Caused By Emergency Room Errors


A visit to the emergency room is almost always unexpected, and when you are treated you want to feel confident knowing that your condition was properly treated. Even in emergency situations, medical professionals are held to the same standards. If there is a misdiagnosis or the diagnosis is missed, or negligent care is provided, emergency room personnel should be held accountable for their actions.

Common Emergency Room Errors

Emergency rooms are typically busy and have a number of different medical professionals working on a single patient. When a medical team is working on your injury or illness, effective communication is of the utmost importance. When the team fails to communicate, there is more room for errors and other injuries to occur.

Common emergency room errors can include:

  • Failure to diagnose heart attack, stroke, brain aneurysm and more
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Treated for a wrong condition
  • Patient mix-up
  • Waiting too long to treat an injury
  • Negligent treatment
