Emergency Room Errors in Atlanta

Have You Been Mistreated in an Atlanta Emergency Room?

Emergency room personnel, for the most part, are highly competent individuals who routinely save lives and provide needed relief to those who are injured and require emergency care. As in any field, though, there are those who do not live up to the standard expected in their field.

Why Do Emergency Room Errors Happen?

No one ever thinks that a visit to the emergency room could actually cause more harm than good. An emergency room is a fast paced, high stress and intensity environment where people go to be treated for severe life threatening injuries. In some rare cases, the emergency room staff fails to provide the proper standard of care or they act carelessly and injure the patient further. The whole purpose of the emergency room is to save people's lives and to provide people with quick medical care in their time of need. However, when medical staff needs to react fast it leaves a marginal room for error.

Some of the most common emergency room error claims that we handle here at the firm include:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Misinterpreting test results
  • Failing to run the necessary tests
  • IV errors
  • Prescribing the wrong medication to a patient
  • Prescribing the wrong dosage of medication to a patient
  • Ignoring important signs and symptoms
  • Wrongfully delaying treatment to a patient
  • Transferring, releasing or dumping a patient because they do not have the proper health insurance

The unfortunate truth of the matter is that the vast majority of emergency room errors are preventable. The smallest mistake such a misdiagnosing or failing to conduct certain tests could lead to a deadly heart attack or stroke if the ER staff is not careful. Most of the time these mistakes are caused by lack of equipment, being understaffed, lack of training, an overcrowd of patients, rushing, or deviating from the standard protocol. Another major problem is when the emergency room staff does not look through the patient's medical history. If you have fallen victim to negligent healthcare in the ER, then you have the right to pursue legal action.
