Injuries Caused by Emergency Room Mistakes
Due to negligence in an emergency room, even something that started out as a minor problem can become a major health problem. Misdiagnosis, failure to treat a patient in a timely manner, and improper treatments can have serious consequences.
Serious injuries can include:
- Loss of blood
- Medication errors
- Misdiagnosed heart attacks and strokes
- Surgical errors
- Diabetic reactions
- Wrongful death
Prolonged wait times due to misdiagnosis are a common problem in present day emergency rooms. In the event of a misdiagnosis of a condition such as a heart attack or stroke, any delay can have fatal consequences.
