ER Errors

Scranton, Pennsylvania Emergency Room Attorneys

Emergency room medical professionals are faced with incredibly difficult tasks that involve admitting, diagnosing, and treating patients with severe, and even life-threatening health conditions.  Even under these difficult working conditions, medical professionals are still required to provide experienced, skilled, and professional medical care.

Unfortunately, many emergency rooms face staff shortages, resulting in overworked staff who may make mistakes at critical moments and that may not render the appropriate treatment in a timely manner.  In fact, emergency room negligence, errors, and substandard care happen regularly and can cause serious and permanent physical disability, injury, and even death.

Located in Moosic, Pennsylvania, Caputo & Mariotti represents victims of emergency room errors from all over Pennsylvania.

Common claims of emergency room errors include:

  • Failure to order tests
  • Failure to observe a patient after discharge
  • Improperly discharging a patient
  • Misreading x-rays
  • Misreading other test results
  • Surgical errors

Unfortunately, many of the common injuries requiring an emergency room visit are misdiagnosed.  Some common conditions that are also misdiagnosed include:

  • Appendicitis
  • Heart disease
  • Heart attack
  • Other heart conditions
  • Stroke
  • Sepsis
  • Ruptured spleen
  • Bone fractures
  • Brain injury
  • Spine injury
  • Meningitis
  • Internal bleeding

While emergency room physicians do admittedly work under stressful and hectic conditions, that does not diminish their duty to ensure every patient receives proper and competent medical care.  If a doctor fails to provide the proper medical care, he or she can cause what can be legally classified as wrongful death.
