Concluding our three-part blog series Emergency Room Mistakes: 6 Facts to Know, below we will discuss some final facts about this type of malpractice, as well as what options injured people may have when they’ve been the target of emergency room mistakes.
Final Important Facts about Emergency Room Mistakes…
Fact 5 – Hospital conditions may increase the risk of emergency room mistakes.
In some cases, the setting of the hospital itself – as well as the hospital’s protocols and procedures – can contribute to an increased risk of emergency room mistakes. In fact, some of the specific aspects of hospitals and their policies that can lead to more emergency room mistakes occurring can include (but is not necessarily limited to):
- Understaffing at hospitals
- Hospitals failing to verify that staff (including ER physicians and nurses) have the appropriate training and experience to work in an ER setting
- A lack of hospital beds and/or medical equipment necessary for diagnosing and treating serious conditions
- A lack of safety protocols.
In the event that hospital conditions, policies and/or staff contribute to emergency room mistakes, injured people should be aware that they may have a hospital liability claim – in addition to a malpractice case against a specific medical professional.
In these cases, pursuing legal action against the negligent hospital can be essential to helping injured patients obtain the full amount of compensation they deserve.
