Lawyers Fighting ER Errors and Hospital Negligence in Cleveland
When you or a loved one has an injury or medical condition that requires immediate attention, you go to your local hospital’s emergency room for help. Most hospitals and emergency rooms provide excellent care. However, emergency rooms and hospitals may be overcrowded and understaffed, creating a recipe for disaster. Situations like this lead to hospital negligence and emergency room errors.
Hospital negligence can lead to serious injury or death. It includes medical malpractice by doctors, nurses, nurse’s aides, physician’s assistants and technicians who are employed all throughout Cleveland hospitals.
Hospital Negligence is Far too Common
Common examples of emergency room errors and hospital negligence are as follows:
- Failure or delay in diagnosing stroke or heart attack;
- Misdiagnosis of a medical condition;
- Errors in prescribing or administering medication;
- Failure to perform or properly interpret diagnostic tests, such as a CT scan or a MRI; or
- Failure to timely treat a serious medical condition.
Regardless of the type of malpractice, the results can be devastating – even the death of a loved one. Worse yet, it is often the case that the poor outcome could have been avoided in the doctor or nurse took one extra step. They may have been able to call for a specialist consult, order an additional test, or even check the past medical history of the patient.
