Emergency Room Errors
Health care providers who work in emergency rooms are trained to diagnose acute problems and take quick action. Because they work so quickly, they may jump to conclusions — often ignoring serious signs of illnesses they should be diagnosing and treating.
Each year emergency room errors lead to serious injuries and death of hospital patients, including those related to misdiagnosis of heart attacks, stroke and cancer. There are many ways that emergency room doctors and other health care providers contribute to emergency room errors:
- Failure to diagnose serious conditions/misdiagnosis
- Failure to conduct proper testing
- Failing to correctly read test results (radiology errors)
- Failure to involve a specialist in the process
