The ER has a particularly high rate of medical errors, and thus causes a relatively high rate of medical malpractice. When you visit the emergency room, you may be forced to stay in the waiting room for far too long and this is a cause of many issues.
Two of the most common medical issues that are overlooked in the ER are heart attacks and appendicitis. In both of these cases, the typical issues are misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or mismanagement of medical tests, leading to a late diagnosis and to severe consequences, often death.
