What Causes Emergency Room Errors?

Errors that occur in American emergency rooms are a leading type of medical malpractice claim. When an individual visits the emergency room, he / she is almost certainly already afraid, vulnerable, and disoriented. It is the responsibility of attending medical professionals to react to the situation with confidence, care, and professionalism, making the right decisions and protecting the patient with excellence.

This doesn’t always happen. In many cases, the failure to be thorough and comprehensive in emergency room care can have disastrous results. You can receive help and find out whether or not you have a valid medical malpractice claim.
