Emergency Room Errors Can Change Your Life
Hospital emergency rooms are frantic environments in which amazing, life-saving actions are performed. Unfortunately, errors are also made by doctors and other medical professionals in emergency rooms. Our Michigan medical malpractice attorneys are skilled at investigating emergency room errors, and holding physicians or hospitals accountable when mistakes result in serious injuries or death.
When Should We Be Worried?
A common error made by emergency room personnel is to discharge a patient that has been treated rather than admit them for additional testing or treatment. Sometimes, this occurs due to misdiagnosis or a missed diagnosis. The consequences can be devastating.
A common example is a patient presenting with chest pain and receiving a diagnosis of an upset stomach or gastric reflux and sent home, only to later have a heart attack. Our firm can help you no matter what your emergency room error may have been. Some of the more common issues that result from emergency room errors include:
- Medication error
- Conducting wrong tests or misreading test results
- Delay or failure to treat a condition
- Improper or contaminated blood transfusion
