Emergency Room Medical Malpractice in Jackson, Mississippi

When you are forced to go to an emergency room during a health crisis, you assume you will be properly cared for and treated. The healthcare professionals that staff emergency rooms in Mississippi are trained to handle the challenging medical situations they are confronted with daily so not every unsatisfactory outcome can be considered medical malpractice or negligence. However, mistakes are made in emergency rooms across Mississippi on a daily basis when emergency room healthcare professionals break the standard of care they owe to their patients.

Emergency room negligence and medical malpractice can be as simple as the failure to take an adequate medical history that results in a medication error or an allergic reaction. An emergency room error can also involve a procedure that results in a surgical error or in a person contracting a serious or deadly infection. A delay in obtaining diagnostic tests or misreading laboratory reports can also result in injury or wrongful death.
