Emergency Room Malpractice
An emergency room is often a hectic place. Many emergency rooms are overcrowded and understaffed, and there can be a lot of pressure on doctors and nurses to quickly diagnose and treat as many patients as possible in order to deal with the large number of cases presented. Improperly read x-rays, CAT scans and MRI test results can have serious consequences. When these mistakes happen in an emergency room, where snap decisions and quick actions are required, the mistakes can be deadly. Lack of communication between doctors, nurses and technicians have caused countless injuries to patients who come to an emergency room seeking life-saving help.
A failure to diagnose or a delay in rendering a diagnosis can also result in a serious injury, or worse. Doctors are expected to practice and treat patients in accordance with the accepted standard of care in their field of medicine. When a doctor fails to do so, he or she can be held liable for damages under New York medical malpractice laws.
