Common Examples of Emergency Room Mistakes in New York State
Emergency rooms are busy and often chaotic environments that see hundreds of patients in one day – especially in metropolitan areas of New York. Although rules and protocols are in place to ensure the safety and efficiency of ERs, hospitals and surgical centers, many facilities and their staff members break these rules to save time or money. Cutting corners in emergency care can cause serious patient injuries and even deaths. At Fiedler Deutsch, LLP, we represent clients injured by any type of emergency room mistakes, including:
- Failure to treat or delayed treatment
- Triage errors
- Lack of communication
- Patient mix-ups
- Excessively long wait times
- Medication mistakes
- Blood transfusion mistakes
- Misinterpreted test results
- Surgical errors
- Intubation and anesthesia mistakes
- Lack of patient follow-up care
If an issue or error at an emergency room in New York State caused you or a loved one a serious injury, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim. A successful claim could repay you for losses such as medical bills, lost income, physical pain, emotional distress, permanent disabilities or a loved one’s death. While compensation may not make up for an ER’s mistake and its impact on your life, it could give you the financial stability you need to move forward.
