Emergency rooms are the busiest areas in hospitals. If an emergency room is understaffed and there is insufficient communication between parties, the chances for misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or medication errors become much higher. In fact, most misdiagnosis cases occur in situations where a patient has been admitted to the ER for treatment. If you or a loved one is a victim of hospital negligence, it is in your best interests to promptly seek advice from an experienced hospital malpractice attorney.
