Medical Negligence in the Emergency Room
Emergency room errors often involve the failure to diagnose heart attack and stroke and other critical conditions. When patients come in displaying warning signs of such conditions, it is incumbent upon the physicians and staff to perform the proper diagnostic tests and procedures.
Other examples of emergency room errors include:
- Faulty laboratory tests
- Failure to properly monitor patients
- Emergency surgery errors
- Medication errors
- Faulty blood transfusions
