Misdiagnosis or Delay in Diagnosis in the ER
Millions of Americans every year go to the emergency room to seek immediate medical treatment. In many instances, ERs are not always properly staffed, and overworked physicians, nurses and staff may not give you the time they need to properly diagnose your illness or injury. You could be sent home or wait for a lengthy period of time when you need immediate medical attention. Misdiagnosis or delay in diagnosis in the ER can lead to serious injury, or even death.
Emergency rooms are hectic environments, but doctors, nurses and staff still have a duty of care to patients. Unfortunately, doctors can still miss obvious symptoms and cause irreparable harm as a result. For instance, chest pains may not be recognized as a symptom of a heart attack. In other cases, appropriate tests are not ordered, or are not interpreted correctly.
