Emergency Room Errors

Monmouth County Emergency Room Error Med Mal Attorneys

Representing NJ victims of emergency room negligence

For most people, an emergency room is for those who need immediate medical care. When we break a bone, need stitches, have chest pains, a quick trip to the nearest emergency room is in order. However, even the most state-of-the-art, award-winning hospitals have emergency rooms that are understaffed and employed with overworked and sometimes under-trained medical personnel. Emergency room errors and mistakes occur in even some of the best emergency rooms and many others throughout the region. Often, the medical mistakes made by ER doctors and nurses can cause serious harm and even death. If you or a loved one have suffered because of the negligence of the ER staff, you need an effective attorney to guide you through your legal matter. The law office of Tomes & Hanratty, P.C. are here to help. Contact our firm for a consultation today.  

How ER errors occur

Emergency rooms are busy, hectic, and overwhelming for the patients and the staff. Though most medical professionals take this frantic environment in stride, mistakes can occur and ultimately, the patient can suffer. Some of the many mistakes seen in ER’s include:

  • A failure to diagnose or treat diabetes causing cardiopulmonary failure
  • A heart attack labeled indigestion
  • A “missed” blood clot resulting in a fatal stroke
  • Meningitis, mistaken for a common infection, resulting in death
  • Medication errors
  • Treatment of the wrong ailment because of confused medical records
  • Unsanitary conditions

These mistakes and more are entirely preventable if the medical professionals tending to your care met the medical standard of care. However, when medical personnel fails to pay full attention to all the details of the case, patients are left to bear the consequences.
