An emergency room error can mean the difference between prolonged illness and a speedy recovery or, in severe cases, life and death. Emergency room nurses and physicians are responsible for diagnosing injuries and medical conditions accurately. When their negligent mistakes cause injury, illness, or death, the injured person or the victim’s family will need help obtaining resources, information, and support.

Common Emergency Room Errors
People who are admitted to the emergency room need immediate medical assistance and emergency room doctors, nurses, and staff are required to uphold the standard duty of care. However, all too often, emergency room patients do not receive proper care.
Some of the most common examples of emergency room errors include:
- Failure to order immediate surgery to save a limb or vital organ
- Failure to recognize the risk of stroke or aneurism
- Failure to recognize the risk of heart attack or cardiac arrest
- Failure to stabilize oxygenation, heart function, or bleeding before transferring or releasing the patient
- Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis
- Medication mistakes, including over- and under-medication
The consequences of poor emergency performance in response to serious illness or trauma can be extremely severe, and will frequently result in death. When this occurs, the negligent medical professionals and/or facility responsible can and should be held liable.
