So many things can happen in your local emergency room.
Staff may have the time and ability to provide for all of your needs.
Staff may be too busy or too understaffed to provide for your needs such that mistakes, errors occur.
What kind of errors?
- Given the wrong medication.
- ED staff fails to diagnose a fracture, condition, infection etc.
- You are sent home without proper care – only to receive a call the next day about a problem that needs care.
