The job of medical care providers in the Emergency Department is to evaluate and a patient’s medical condition correctly and decide on the best treatment.
If there is an emergency condition, it must be diagnosed as quickly as possible so that the proper care for the emergency can quickly be instituted. Proper Emergency Department practice may be referral to the proper medical specialty, admission to the hospital or transfer to a different institution where the appropriate care can be rendered.
When injuries and medical conditions are made worse in the Emergency Room or are caused by untimely or incorrect evaluation and treatment, there may be medical malpractice.
Medical malpractice that may happen in an emergency room can be:
- Failure to Diagnose
- Failure to admit to hospital or transfer
- Failure to quickly asses and treat
