Were You Sent Home When You Should Have Been Admitted?
Emergency room staffers are trained to act quickly. As a patient, you rightfully trust that they will take your concerns seriously, order the correct labs and tests and provide you with proper medical treatment.
Errors in the emergency room are a type of medical malpractice and can occur when a patient’s complaints are minimized, proper diagnostic testing is not ordered and patients are sent home when they should be admitted to the hospital.
While many types of problems can arise due to negligent ER staff, common types include a failure to diagnose:
- Heart attack
- Brain aneurysm
- Pulmonary embolism
- Internal bleeding or hemorrhaging
When you are in an emergency medical situation, it is vitally important that the medical staff assisting you complies with the standard of care. If you suffered a heart attack, stroke or other medical problem after receiving negligent care in the ER, our lawyers can help you.
