People are rushed to the local hospital’s emergency room to get immediate medical attention after a sudden illness or accident. We count on EMTs and ER doctors to work quickly to save our lives, but also not to make misdiagnoses or other mistakes that actually make things worse.
Medical malpractice is never acceptable, but some doctors’ errors are simply baffling. For instance, say you tripped and fell, slammed your face against a piece of furniture and were taken to the ER. Wouldn’t you expect medical staff to at least check for brain and spinal injuries?
