New York Hospital Negligence Attorneys
Medical Malpractice Law Firm Focused on Successful Results for Almost 40 Years
Often the term "emergency room error" conjures up thoughts of a slow response to a traumatic injury or carelessly performed surgery. Many emergency room errors, though, are more subtle and result from:
- A failure to properly interpret test results like MRI slides
- Hospital-acquired infections like MRSA infections
- The failure to detect an ailment when that ailment is not the reason for the hospital visit. (For instance, in some cases, emergency room staff can commit negligence if they fail to detect an obvious lump)
- Misdiagnosis of serious ailments
- Triage errors such as not treating a patient with a serious injury in a timely manner
Emergency room doctors, nurses and other staff members have a long list of duties, checks and practices they are required to perform as part of the standards of care in emergency situations. When emergency room errors lead to injuries or wrongful death victims can often pursue financial compensation through a medical malpractice and injury lawsuit.
