Emergency Room Error Lawyers in Baltimore

Legal assistance following negligence in the ER

Those in dire need of medical treatment rely on the services of emergency room doctors and nurses. While many visits to the ER successfully put patients on the path to recovery, mistakes that occur in the ER can result in complications that compromise a patient’s health and have other disastrous consequences. You have every right to seek the assistance of an attorney if you are suffering because of the aftermath of an emergency room error.

Staffing and training issues in emergency rooms

Understaffing and the inadequate training of healthcare professionals assigned to staff emergency rooms plays a large role in emergency room errors. Despite their best intentions, doctors and nurses in an understaffed facility may not see patients in critical need of care as soon as they should, or they may overlook symptoms of serious issues if they are rushing to see as many patients as possible in a brief period of time. Lack of proper training can mean the staff member who sees you is unfamiliar with how to properly diagnose and care for your condition. When combined, these two elements pose a great risk for the health and safety of individuals seeking treatment in an emergency room.
