Pennsylvania Emergency Room Negligence

If an emergency room is unequipped to handle high level trauma patients either due to lack of staff (during overnight hours) or to its status as a lower level trauma center, it is required to send the patient to a trauma center that can manage the injury – immediately. Often, a serious emergency room injury results when the facility is overcrowded or understaffed, causing doctor negligence, such as:

  • Failure to consider patient complaints
  • Failure to order appropriate testing based on patient complaints
  • Failure to admit to the hospital for further diagnostics or monitoring
  • Failure to send to a trauma center when necessary
  • Failure to recognize symptoms consistent with a condition
  • Failure to recognize symptoms and timely diagnose conditions such as a heart attack, stroke, or pulmonary embolism
  • Other emergency room errors
