Types and Causes of Emergency Room Errors
Two of the most common types of emergency room errors are misdiagnosis and medication errors. Misdiagnosis happens when the doctor incorrectly diagnoses a condition or fails to diagnose a condition. In emergency rooms, heart attacks are commonly misdiagnosed.
Medication errors are also common. These occur when a patient is prescribed the wrong type of medication. They also occur when the medication is correct, but the dosage is too much. In an emergency room, doctors, nurses or other health care providers may be responsible for these types of errors.
Errors may also include a delay in treatment or misreading test results. These errors can result in serious injury.
