How Emergency Room Malpractice Harms Patients

Medical malpractice occurs when a patient is harmed by receiving substandard treatment. That means the emergency room failed to meet the standard of care.

For example, if a patient was suffering a heart attack but the doctor mistook their symptoms for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), this could cause a serious delay in treatment. When determining if medical malpractice occurred, your attorney will compare the doctor’s actions to what a reasonably competent doctor would have done in the same situation.

When treatment is delayed or denied, it can exacerbate many kinds of medical emergencies, including:

  • Strokes
  • Internal bleeding
  • Meningitis
  • Aneurysms
  • Bacterial infections
  • Heart attacks
  • Appendicitis

Misdiagnosis, poor communication, and flawed hospital procedures can all lead to errors that prevent an emergency room patient from receiving the right treatment. Examples of Washington emergency room malpractice include:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed treatment
  • Laboratory errors
  • Failure to perform necessary tests
  • Medication errors
  • Botched procedures
  • Failure to monitor a patient
  • Premature patient discharge
  • Inadequate hospital procedures
  • Communication errors
  • Failure to consult a specialist
  • Failure to check a patient’s medical records
  • Misinterpreting laboratory results
  • Mixing up medical charts
