Hospital & Emergency Room Errors
At some point, nearly all Americans will depend on doctors, hospitals and emergency rooms to provide us with medical assistance. The medical professionals that provide these services save lives every day, but unfortunately, there are also far too many instances where careless errors, mistakes and negligence cause tragic and preventable patient deaths.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that more than 115 million Americans are treated in emergency rooms every year. Of those 115 Million, an estimated 225,000 will die. While this may seem like a relatively small amount of deaths compared to lives saved, the truth is that nearly 50% of those emergency room deaths can be attributed to preventable hospital errors.
Doctors, nurses, EMTs and all medical professionals have a responsibility to provide patient care that falls within an acceptable standard. When these professionals fail to live up to that standard, they put patients at risk. Gauthier Amedee will fight to defend your rights and hold these parties accountable for negligent actions that leave patients permanently or fatally injured.
Examples of preventable Hospital and Emergency Room Errors include:
- Wrong or incorrect dosage of medication
- Bacterial infections from unsterilized tools
- Delay in treatment
- General negligence
- And more
