Emergency Room Misdiagnosis & Errors

Long waits, high volumes of patients and shortages of staff cripple our nation's emergency rooms. The time stresses that characterize our health care systems often mean that critical symptoms remain unnoticed or dismissed by overworked emergency room professionals. The likelihood of an emergency room error increases with the failure to review medical records, order the right tests, interpret X-rays and lab reports correctly, properly diagnosis patients, monitor vital signs, or prescribe the right medications.

While the emergency room has always been a fast-paced environment, this is certainly not an excuse for medical malpractice on the part of nurses, doctors, surgeons and other medical staff.
