Unfortunately, medical mistakes can, and do, happen in the emergency room. Physician and hospital errors can occur at any stage of the patient’s emergency room visit. Whether an initial incorrect assessment resulting in a delay in diagnosis or treatment, or a later misdiagnosis because of failure to order requisite diagnostic testing or specialist consultations, misreading films or prescribing incorrect medications – – all can lead to disastrous consequences resulting in serious injury or even death.

Preventable emergency room errors may include:
- Inadequate record-keeping procedures
- Inadequate medication administration procedures
- Failing to maintain an adequate number of doctors and support staff per shift
