When Emergency Care Lets You Down

The emergency room can be an extremely fast-paced and stressful environment for all healthcare providers. This can be a recipe for disaster that results in life-threatening mistakes.

Even in this fast-paced environment, however, there are clear do's and don'ts. Doctors must order the right tests, must make the right diagnosis, must prescribe the right medications. Most of these decisions involve a reasonable level of risk.

Sometimes, however, a wrong decision is made, and the patient is permanently injured or dies. These are the situations in which a malpractice suit is justified.
