Emergency Room Error Lawyers in Cincinnati

Most Common Emergency Room Errors

The most frequent medical errors that take place in the ER include:

  • Diagnostic errors: Roughly 60 percent of ER errors are diagnostic mistakes.
  • Ignoring or neglecting to collect basic medical history information.
  • Inappropriate testing: This can include ordering the wrong test or not ordering a test at all.
  • Test findings: Even if the proper test is ordered and administered, it can still be misinterpreted or miscommunicated to other medical personnel.
  • Medication errors: This can include the wrong medicine, the wrong dosage, or even a complete lack of medication.
  • Botched follow-up: This can mean a lack of proper follow-up instructions or care to a patient.
  • Delayed treatment.
