Common Types of Emergency Room Errors

When a preventable emergency room error occurs, patients suffer needlessly

Emergency room errors can include:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Misinterpretation of Test Results
  • Failure to Consult a Specialist
  • Medication Errors
  • Delays in Treatment
  • Other causes of injury

At D'Amico & Pettinicchi, LLC, our medical negligence attorneys represent victims of all types of emergency room errors that result in serious injury, disability, or death.

  • Heart Attack?Cardiac symptoms are often misdiagnosed as intestinal upset. Emergency room patients are sent home only to suffer a cardiac arrest within hours of seeking medical help.
  • Stroke?Medications that can reduce the consequences of a stroke should be administered within three hours of onset of symptoms. Doctors who misdiagnose stroke symptoms rob patients of their best chance for a positive outcome.
  • Bowel Obstruction?Often misdiagnosed as minor intestinal upset
  • Ruptured Spleen?Common in an auto accident victim, a ruptured spleen causes internal bleeding that can be fatal if not detected and treated in time.
