Why Do Emergency Room Errors Occur?
Most emergency room errors are preventable. They occur when one or multiple parties fail to uphold their standards of care according to the expectations of the medical industry. If a receptionist, nurse, physician’s assistant, doctor, surgeon, radiologist or another party at the ER behaves negligently, that person could be guilty of malpractice if a patient gets hurt as a result.

- Lack of communication
- Data processing mistakes

There are many examples of preventable emergency room errors. Careless mistakes and avoidable oversights could lead to a misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, failure to treat, medication mistake, surgical error or another type of malpractice. An individual or the health care center could be liable for any instance of medical malpractice that harms a patient.
