What is Emergency Room Malpractice?
A hospital that operates an emergency room (ER) is expected by patients and by society in general to meet widely accepted standards of care. Emergency rooms have special responsibilities besides the care standards that apply to all health care providers.
Namely, according to the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act passed by Congress in 1986, hospitals that accept Medicare (including nearly all hospitals) must provide emergency care treatment to anyone who needs it regardless of:
- Legal status
- Ability to pay
"Care" in an emergency room setting includes a wide range of activities affecting sick and injured people such as triage, examinations, treatments, diagnoses, and release of patients. Proper attention to patients’ symptoms, test results, and degree of urgency can mean the difference between life and death — and between good outcomes and poor ones.
