Emergency rooms are extremely chaotic places, and the medical professionals in emergency rooms are often jumping from one serious case to another in an effort to treat people in critical need of medical attention. Despite this chaos, however, the medical professionals who work in emergency rooms still have a duty to properly care for the patients they treat and do everything in their power to help these patients achieve the optimal possible recovery.
Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and a number of factors – including (but not limited to the following) – can play a role in causing emergency room doctors and nurses to make mistakes when treating patients:
- Insufficient staff to treat patients
- Medical staff who are not properly or adequately trained to treat emergency cases
- Medical staff who are overworked, tired and, therefore, not necessarily able to properly treat patients
- Defective or faulty medical equipment that can result in misdiagnosis or treatment errors.
