Emergency Room Errors
The Centers for Disease Control estimate that 136.3 million people are treated in American emergency rooms annually. Of the 225,000 people who die from medical malpractice-related injuries each year, almost half are due to Emergency Room Errors.
It is a doctor’s duty to provide reasonable patient care that falls within accepted standards and guidelines. Healthcare professionals who ignore this duty are guilty of medical negligence. When a physician or other health care professional fails to provide adequate care to their patient, and that patient suffers injury or death, it can result in a claim of Medical Malpractice.
