Emergency Room Errors
Decades of Experience Protecting Clients’ Best Interests
Emergency rooms are, by definition, frantic and sometimes chaotic places. Patients are numerous, in pain, scared, and often surrounded by family members who are likewise frightened. The staff of any emergency room will almost invariably be stressed, exhausted, and working demanding shifts. None of this excuses subpar care, however, particularly if someone experiences additional or exacerbated injury because of it.
All emergency room staff are expected to do their part in diagnosing problems, providing adequate treatment, and monitoring your condition, and when they fail to fulfill their obligations, the results can be disastrous. At Law Offices of Sandra M. Radna, P.C., our Long Island and NYC emergency room error lawyers understand how to handle cases like yours, and have the experience necessary to pursue claims in this complex area of law.
Types of Emergency Room Errors
Medicine is an intense, often unforgiving profession, and carelessness, recklessness, or neglect can all result in consequences that follow the victim for the rest of their lives.
Just a few of the emergency room errors our New York City firm can help you to address include:
- Administering medication the patient is allergic to
- Misdiagnosing a patient
- Treating a patient for the wrong disorder
- Operating on the wrong body part
- Failing to thoroughly check the patient’s medical history
- Prematurely discharging a patient
- Failing to treat a condition in a timely manner
- Failing to order the appropriate tests
