When visiting an accident and emergency ward the nature of your visit is usually linked to the title of the ward, in that your injury or illness requires emergency treatment. A&E wards deal with a variety of injuries ranging from minor to life threatening. Delay in treatment or negligent treatment from a medical professional can cause further injury, exacerbate a condition or even result in the death of a patient.
Accident and Emergency delays causing harm
Although A&E wards can become overrun, often due to under staffing, this can result in long waits and harmful delays in treatment. Even when accident and emergency wards are beyond capacity the medical professionals in attendance have a duty to prioritise injuries so that those in need of urgent medical attention are not left untreated.
Were significant delays have led to a patient’s condition worsening or even causing death, medical staff should of identified symptoms, were if not treated quickly, pose a serious risk to the patient.
A&E negligent treatment
When accident and emergency wards are stretched to capacity, doctors and nurses often feel the pressure to treat patients quickly, sometimes leading to avoidable mistakes. As with all areas of medicine there is room for mistakes and negligent treatment to occur.
Although many Accident and Emergency Claims, cases are minor, others see patients rushed in with serious injuries that are potentially life threatening. Mistakes or negligent treatment in incidents where injuries are life threatening could result in death.
Accident and Emergency Claims may include:
Wrongful discharge claims
Failure to prescribe appropriate treatment
Failure to carry out appropriate investigations
(This list is not exhaustive)
Paramedic & Ambulances
The work of paramedics and ambulance staff is a vital part of the health service, they administer life saving treatment as well as bringing the critically ill to hospital. Although the service they provide is vital, mistakes made at stage of an injury can have a profound affect on the condition of an injured or ill patient.
Negligent treatment from paramedics or the careless transfer of an injured patient from ambulance to hospital can have serious consequences for the injured patient.
