It may be shocking to learn that 100,000 people lose their lives each year as a result of negligent emergency room staff members. Even more shocking is that this is only a small fraction of the total number of people who are forced to visit emergency rooms each year. Over 100 million people are treated in ERs every year due to injuries and illnesses. Understaffed ERs, defective adequate medical equipment, lack of medical equipment, or poorly trained ER doctors and staff members are all problems that exist in ERs throughout the United States. In the case of an emergency room visit, you will most often do not have any information about the medical staff that is treating you. Everyone would like to believe that medical professionals treating them are trained and capable to care for their injury or illness; however, this is not always the case. Although there are standards of care set by the industry, negligent medical staff members cause the additional health problems for ER patients at an astounding rate. This kind of negligence is not only unacceptable, but also dangerous for anyone who needs the medical assistance of an emergency room. If you or a loved one has suffered due to the negligent actions of emergency room staff members, contact an attorney to discuss your legal options.
