Emergency Room Errors In Florida
The emergency room is a pressure-packed place to work for doctors, nurses and other medical personnel. For those who are experiencing a medical emergency, the pressure is even greater. In addition to the physical pain that generally accompanies a trip to the busy ER department, there is often the added uncertainty of an unfamiliar hospital and doctors you do not know. Unfortunately, the ER is frightening for another reason. It is a place where many medical errors occur.
Emergency room errors are not rare. In some cases, understaffing and overwork lead doctors to make poor decisions. The speed of the work may lead to breakdowns in communication. The doctor’s lack of familiarity with the patient may lead to vital factors being overlooked. When mistakes and medication errors do happen, the result can be catastrophic.
