Emergency Room Errors

When an unexpected medical situation arises, emergency rooms are often the only places that can handle the medical needs of a patient. Unfortunately, the chaos that surrounds emergency rooms sometimes compromises patient welfare. This may lead to dangerous errors which result in a failure to timely or correctly treat a patient’s illness or injury.

Common Emergency Room Errors

Doctors, nurses, pharmaceutical professionals, and administrative employees each play a role in the provision of care, whether directly or indirectly so. Accordingly, each may in some way contribute to an emergency room error. Some of the most common emergency room errors include:

  • Errors in diagnosis
  • Failure to respond to a medical condition in a timely manner
  • Pharmaceutical errors
  • General negligence
  • Failure to properly sterilize or clean instruments and facilities
  • Surgical errors

Even in the hectic environment of an emergency room, there is no excuse for errors that compromise the well-being of innocent patients who are in need of treatment.
