The emergency room in a hospital is often a busy place with many people waiting long periods of time for medical help. Patients may wait for hours to be seen, while their condition continues to gradually worsen.
ER doctors and nurses are commonly known to be overworked, as emergency rooms are often understaffed. In the presence of these circumstances, negligence becomes a fairly common occurrence in emergency rooms throughout Texas. If you or someone you know has suffered serious injury due to ER malpractice or hospital negligence, you deserve to take legal action against the responsible party and recover financial compensation for your injuries.
Emergency Room Negligence
Some forms of ER negligence may include:
- Failure to diagnose
- Medication errors
- Nurse or doctor error
- Surgery error
- Anesthesia error
The failure to recognize and diagnose a serious medical condition is a common emergency room error that can have disastrous results for a patient. In some cases, ER malpractice may even lead to death when a life-threatening injury or illness is misdiagnosed or is simply not noticed by the attending doctor or nurse.
