When a doctor or another healthcare provider makes a serious medical mistake in a hospital emergency room, serious consequences can result. If you suffered injuries due to an emergency room mistake, speak with a Matthews medical malpractice lawyer to go over your legal options.
People often go to an emergency room or urgent care center when they become seriously injured or ill and medical treatment can’t wait. Emergency rooms are often very hectic – especially in urban areas – and healthcare providers are often in a rush to treat their patients. Unfortunately, when that happens, emergency room healthcare providers can make serious medical mistakes.
A medical mistake refers to a negative or adverse effect of medical care – that could have been prevented by a healthcare provider acting reasonably under the circumstances. Medical mistakes are often caused by failing to properly process and gather patient intake information, failing to properly diagnose a patient’s medical condition (or misdiagnosing the patient’s condition), or failing to perform a medical procedure properly.
