Emergency Room Errors in Hawaii

Medical Malpractice Lawsuits: ER Mistakes

Medical practitioners are expected to maintain a standard of care when diagnosing and treating their patients. When a doctor, nurse or other health care professional negligence results in injuries or illnesses, they can be held liable for their actions. This includes errors made in emergency rooms. An emergency room is often a hectic work environment where mistakes can easily take place.

Types of errors can include:

  • Improper evaluation
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Delayed or wrong diagnoses
  • Ineffective or no monitoring of a patient
  • Medication overdose
  • Lab work errors
  • Improper procedures
  • Surgical mistakes

Many times errors are caused by insufficient training, inadequate recordkeeping and overworked staff. An unsanitary or poorly maintained facility can also cause injuries and illnesses. If you or a loved one were injured in an emergency room, contact a Honolulu personal injury attorney from Bostwick & Peterson LLP for legal advice. Our capable attorneys can review your case and explain your injury compensation options. We can also investigate and document your claim and provide dedicated legal advocacy.
