Emergency Room Errors
Should you have been injured in a hospital emergency room (ER) anyplace in the State of Florida, contact this Fort Lauderdale Emergency Room (ER) Mistake/Error Lawyer for help. Emergency rooms can be hectic places. New patients enter at a fast pace, and things can easily get hectic as medical providers attempt to deal with each new crisis. In part because of this fast-paced nature of emergency rooms, mistakes do frequently occur and, if they do in your situation and you are injured as a result, you may be able to pursue an emergency room malpractice case against the doctors, nurses or other medical providers that were negligent.
Various types of errors typically occur in emergency rooms. For example, medical providers in emergency rooms may fail to properly diagnose certain medical conditions. Because of the hectic nature of an emergency room, medical providers in ER’s may have as their primary goal “putting out fires” or dealing with emergencies. They may not have the proper focus on correctly diagnosing medical conditions. For example, diagnoses such as heart disease, stroke, sepsi, or brain injury/bleeding are medical diagnoses that are frequently missed in the emergency room.

If you go to the emergency room with a certain medical condition and the medical providers in the hospital fail to diagnose that condition and instead discharge you, you may be able to pursue an emergency room negligence case against the medical providers that misdiagnosed you if your condition later becomes worse. However, this will only be the case if it can be proven that your medical condition became worse because it wasn’t initially diagnosed in the emergency room. That is, if it can later be shown that your medical condition was going to become worse anyway (i.e., that there was nothing the emergency room could have done about it), then you will most likely not be able to pursue a case.

Emergency room mistakes also include situations wherein medical providers in emergency rooms do not order the proper tests to diagnose you medical condition. When treating patients, medical providers are required to make a diligent effort to determine your condition. This includes ordering the proper tests to attempt to make the correct diagnosis. These tests may include x-rays, MRI’s (standing for magnetic resonance imaging), CT scans and other diagnostic imaging. If an emergency room medical provider doesn’t order the proper tests and fails to diagnose your condition as a result, then he or she may be responsible for your condition if it later worsens. Again, you will need to prove that, if the tests had been run earlier, the condition could have been caught and the later worsening of the condition could have been avoided.This South Florida Emergency Room (ER) Negligence Law Firm Provides Strong Representation for the Injured
Emergency room medical providers also frequently err by discharging patients when they shouldn’t be discharged. As mentioned above, emergency rooms frequently experience high volumes of traffic. As such, there is pressure to get patients in-and-out of the hospital. As a result, patients are frequently discharged when they shouldn’t be. If you or a loved one is discharged from an emergency room and later experience a set-back that could have been avoided if you had been kept in the hospital and treated, then you may have an emergency room medical malpractice case.

If this is the case and you are injured as a result, you may be able to pursue an emergency room negligence case.Call 954-448-7288 to Speak to this Broward County Emergency Room (ER) Malpractice Attorney
