On any given day and at any given time, emergency rooms everywhere see lots of patients in a short period of time - many of which are dealing with serious injuries and need immediate care.
With all the budget cuts today that include understaffing in hospitals, many emergency room personnel often lack appropriate training and can make serious errors when diagnosing that sometimes harm the patient.
Examples of emergency room errors include, but are not limited to:
- Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose heart attack, stroke and other illnesses
· Surgical errors
· Waiting room delays that prevent timely treatment of injury
· Medication errors
