An emergency room is, by nature, a busy and hectic place. However, regardless of how busy it may be, patients expect to receive the best possible care. Unfortunately, hurried doctors can often make mistakes that can lead to serious harm to their patients. One of the most common mistakes made in the ER occurs when doctors misread test results. If you or someone you know has been harmed as a result of misread medical test results, you may be a victim of medical malpractice.
Doctors rely heavily on test results such as toxicity screens, EKGs, X-rays, and CT Scans. When doctors fail to properly interpret test results serious medical problems can result, including untreated and metastasized cancer and preventable strokes, aneurysms and heart attacks. If this occurs due to negligence such as failure to request a proper consultation or missing a common sign of a serious injury, that doctor could be liable for medical malpractice.
