Williamsport Emergency Room Errors Lawyer
Hospital emergency rooms are typically understaffed and crowded, with doctors and nurses often working under difficult conditions. In caring for people presenting with a plethora of conditions, medical staff may be rushed, stressed out or tired due to late or early schedules, or they may simply be inexperienced.
Emergency rooms are money losers for hospitals because of the many patients who are uninsured.
By law, hospitals cannot turn away patients from emergency rooms, but they often compromise on the quality of care that is provided. As an unfortunate result, thousands of people experience serious injuries, preventable complications or loss of life each year because of the treatment or lack of treatment they receive.
