What Mistakes Occur in Emergency Rooms?

In any hospital setting, emergency room or not, mistakes should never occur. The problem with emergency rooms is that many patients’ needs can be overlooked, and they receive inappropriate care. In some cases, patients may even be turned away due to overcrowding or lack of available services. At Berthold Law Firm, PLLC, we believe that this is unjust. That is why we are here to help you if you have suffered due to emergency room mistakes.

These are the types of errors that should never occur:

  • Failing to provide diagnostic testing
  • Defective or inadequate lab exams
  • Giving the wrong or improper dose of medication
  • Letting a patient go home before their condition has improved
  • Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis of a serious medical condition
  • Failure to diagnose internal bleeding, blood clots, heart attack, or stroke

For those who have suffered after visiting the emergency room—either due to mistreatment, misdiagnosis, injury, or another form of negligence—there are legal remedies to right these wrongs. As West Virginia medical malpractice attorneys, we believe that emergency rooms should treat all patients fairly and by the medically accepted standards of the industry. Anything less than this standard may be a case of medical malpractice.
