Can Medical Malpractice Occur in an Emergency Room?

Medical malpractice occurs when any doctor, hospital or health care professional fails to follow the medical standard of care, and a patient is harmed as a result. This can absolutely take place in an emergency room, particularly when medical professionals are overworked and understaffed. In this video, Philadelphia medical malpractice attorney Ken Rothweiler explains a case he handled where a woman went to the ER, but she did not receive the proper testing that should have been done for a person with her symptoms.
