How Do Emergency Room Errors Occur?

Proper communication between doctors and nursing staff is required in order to ensure a patient's safety. When it does not happen, medical histories can be improperly recorded and the consequences can be devastating for the patient.

Errors occur in emergency rooms for many different reasons, including:

  • Lack of communication
  • Lack of coordination
  • Understaffed hospitals
  • Negligence

Medical professionals working in emergency rooms should be trained to follow proper steps in order to ensure that serious warning signs for medical conditions are not overlooked and that the patient's safety is put first. Unfortunately, negligence often leads to misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose.
