Medical Malpractice – Emergency Room (ER) Negligence
When an injury or illness necessitates immediate medical assistance, a trip to the emergency room is often unavoidable. Emergency rooms are designed to promptly provide medical care and life-saving treatment in times of need. They are staffed with medical professionals who should be capable of dealing with any type of emergency injury or illness they face.
Emergency Room Standards of Care
A medical professional who works in an emergency room must think quickly and decisively. They also must pay close attention to detail, and meet the needs of any patient with appropriate services. As demanding as this may seem, medical providers in the emergency room are specially-trained to respond effectively under the most demanding and stressful of circumstances.

Unfortunately, many hospitals fail to staff their emergency rooms with competent, well-trained physicians and personnel. Every year, medical malpractice in these emergency rooms results in thousands of Americans suffering additional injuries and even wrongful death because of an ER medical professional’s negligence.
Defining Emergency Room Negligence
Doctors, nurses and other professionals in emergency rooms often work under a large amount of pressure. It is important that they triage, diagnose, treat, and release patients as quickly as possible so as to treat the most severely injured first and so they can be available for the next emergency.
Even though the emergency room can be a hectic place, it is important that they provide every patient with accurate and necessary treatments to avoid future complications. Failure to do so is medical malpractice, and entitles you to compensation for damages the negligence causes.
