Many people feel that a trip to the emergency room is a pain because they are overcrowded and understaffed.  The is fact that the emergency rooms make mistakes that result in death or serious injuries are never excusable.  There are a number of common errors that emergency room staff perform:

  • Medication Mistakes – this is when they give you the wrong drug or the wrong amount of drug which is due typically from poor communication with the patient
  • Delayed Treatment – when someone arrives to the emergency room, they are sometimes delayed hours before they get treated.  This can result in horrible consequences that can create life-threatening dangers
  •  Mis-Diagnosis/Failure to Diagnose – this is probably the most common error when they fail to diagnose what is actually wrong.  People come in with chest pain and they think it is a stomach pain and the patient ends up having a heart attack when they leave the hospital
  • Mis-Interpreting Tests – this is a result of emergency room physicians and nurses being under stress and they are rushed.  The tests and the images can be mis-labeled, incorrectly processed or somehow lost.
