Emergency Room Errors

One of the more common causes of medical malpractice litigation is emergency room errors. Even though undoubtedly emergency medicine has saved countless lives, many emergency rooms are overcrowded and medical teams are spread thin. When this is the situation, it can lead to a health care practitioner failing to provide medical care of quality, but a doctor should never needlessly endanger his patient. There are some types of emergency room errors that occur with high frequency, including:

  • Failing to order appropriate tests
  • Misreading X-Rays of fractures and misinterpretation of laboratory tests
  • Misreading an EKG
  • Administering the wrong medication
  • Failing to notice medical allergy alert
  • Neglecting patients who need immediate care
