Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers file cases against hospitals for the failure to properly diagnose and treat emergency conditions in hospital emergency departments. Patients frequently present to emergency rooms with conditions that require prompt diagnosis and treatment. It is essential that these emergency room patients be properly evaluated and tested so that appropriate treatment can be commenced in a timely manner.
Common Emergency Room Malpractice Lawsuits
The most common successful lawsuits brought against hospital emergency rooms for emergency department errors and mistakes include:
- Failure to diagnose a fracture or dislocation
- Failure to diagnose a foreign body in a wound
- Failure to diagnose a heart attack, or myocardial infarction
- Failure to diagnose appendicitis
- Failure to diagnose a stroke
- Failure to diagnose a pulmonary embolism (PE) or deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
- Failure to diagnose meningitis
- Failure to diagnose an ectopic pregnancy
It is essential that the medical staff take all appropriate steps based upon the patient history and symptoms of the patient to properly diagnose a life threatening condition or a condition that will lead to severe complications if a timely diagnosis is not made . In cases where a patient dies due to the failure to diagnose a condition in the emergency department, the surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit.
