Dangerous Mistakes

You may want to contact a Phoenix emergency room error attorney if you or a loved one has been injured by mistakes such as:

  • Delayed diagnosis or treatment
  • Wrong diagnosis
  • Medication errors (overmedicating, under-medicating, wrong drug, etc)
  • Prescription errors (prescribing the wrong drug for the problem, allergic reactions, etc)
  • Spread of infections
  • Patient dumping (transferring a patient to another hospital without proper cause)
  • Misuse of anesthesia

Many excuses have been offered for mistakes like these: poor communication in emergency rooms, overcrowded working conditions, and the need for quick decisions in an emergency. However, these difficulties are the exact reason that medical workers are (or should be) very thoroughly trained. If any medical worker fails to meet the standards of the profession, he or she should be held responsible.
