In the fast-paced environment of a hospital emergency room, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals are bound to make mistakes. Not all emergency room errors can be passed off as understandable mistakes, however. When the treatment falls below an accepted level of care, it becomes a case of medical malpractice.

Caputo are here to provide you with experienced advice and advocacy. For more than 40 years, we have stood up for victims of medical negligence and their families.
When Malpractice Strikes In The Emergency Room
The most common form of medical malpractice taking place in emergency rooms is misdiagnosis — when a patient comes into the emergency room suffering from a heart attack, stroke or an invection, for instance, and the doctor sends them home.
The victims of emergency room malpractice can suffer greatly. In some cases, these instances of malpractice result in severe medical setbacks, serious injuries and even wrongful death.
