When doctors fail to diagnose diseases, the results are often tragic. For instance, cancer patients whose doctors failed to diagnose the disease may suffer advanced stages of cancer, require additional treatment, or find that their cancer has advanced to terminal and untreatable stages. Furthermore, patients visit the ER in order to receive what they believe is closely-monitored care. Unfortunately, many ER doctors are overworked and fatigued. Hospital policies and oversight may not be as rigorous as it should be and sometimes doctors fail to provide an adequate standard of care. Hospitals may be trying to cut costs, in some instances. Sadly, a misdiagnosis in the ER can result in a patient being sent home too soon. If you were sent home too soon from the hospital and then later had to be readmitted, you may be entitled to receive compensation from the hospital for your additional medical expenses, and pain and suffering. Early unwarranted hospital discharge is not uncommon. As many as 10% to 20% of patients who are discharged from the hospital may have to return to receive additional care. Elderly patients are more vulnerable, though any patient can be subject to early release without adequate treatment. Furthermore, swamped ER departments may not perform proper tests on patients, resulting in their failure to detect deadly heart attacks or strokes. Medical malpractice is a broad term that applies to a wide range of medical errors.
