When a loved one becomes seriously injured or otherwise needs immediate medical care, the typical response is to take them to the closest emergency room in Atlanta. This is always the correct course of action. E.R. medical professionals and doctors are trained to act as quickly as possible to save their patients while keeping them safe and retaining a proper standard of care.
Sometimes, unfortunately, mistakes are made in the emergency room. Understaffing sometimes leads to negligence. Medical errors are rare but happen in emergency rooms across the nation. When negligence or carelessness causes a tragic mistake to happen that leads to further injury and/or even death, we call these cases medical malpractice cases. It’s important to note that with the proper training, staffing procedures, and prevention methods, medical malpractice mistakes can be prevented.
