According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in five people visits emergency rooms for medical treatment at least once a year in the U.S., with nearly 8 percent reporting two visits annually.

Government studies also have shown that while the number of emergency room visits has increased, the total number of ERs has declined nationwide. That has led to significantly increased wait times for patients with a medical emergency and longer work hours for emergency department medical professionals. That’s a dangerous mix, which often leads to catastrophic medical errors.

The experienced ER medical malpractice attorneys at Ross Feller Casey have successfully litigated numerous emergency room lawsuits, including some of the largest of their kind in the region. Among their many successful medical malpractice cases are:

What Are The Most Common Emergency Room Errors?

Like other medical settings, emergency rooms are subject to medical mistakes happening at the hands of healthcare professionals. When this happens, emergency room patients may have grounds to file medical malpractice claims.

Medical negligence can happen in emergency rooms due to numerous factors, including:

  • Misdiagnoses
  • Failure to order proper tests
  • Understaffing
  • Inadequate training of staff, including admitting personnel
  • Sub-standard “triage” or patient tracking
  • Medication errors
  • Unsanitary conditions
  • Patient “dumping”
