When you or a loved one needs to be whisked off to the Emergency Room, it can be terrifying. Many of us have had to call paramedics for a loved one, or have raced to the ER after a middle-of-the night phone call, not knowing what we'd find when we arrived.
Dealing with medical emergencies is stressful enough. It can be devastating when a loved one needs emergency medical care, and is not helped promptly or properly. Nothing feels worse than huddling in a hospital hallway, hearing that a loved one didn't make it, or has suffered an irreversible injury. You can't help agonizing, wondering if anything could have been done to prevent it.
Sometimes bad news is unavoidable. But there are also many times when an ER doctor or nurse makes a mistake, causing a loss that should never have happened.
It's not always easy for patients or families to determine whether an ER mistake caused their injury. Many families suspect or fear that their loved one received inadequate care, but have no idea how to find out for sure or to prove it. ER errors can take many forms, including:
To make things more difficult, your attention is on your loved one. Holding the person who caused the injury accountable is on the back burner. Caring for your loved one, or grieving for them, is what you need to focus on. But at the same time, there is a mountain of medical bills, and less income is coming in. It's too much to manage by yourself, especially if you're wondering where the money is going to come from to care for your loved one or your family.
