Accident & Emergency rooms make up a huge part of the operation of the NHS. The decision making which takes place in A&E wards can sometimes mean the difference between life and death, so it is important that they are held to a high standard. While A&E work to strict budgets, and deal with large volumes of patients on a daily basis, they must adhere to strict standards when it comes to patient care.
If you feel like you have received negligent care in A&E, then you may have a claim. NHS staff are trained to deal with the pressures of working in a high-pressure environment like this, so if they are unable to cope with working in the role, then it is important that this is addressed.
Types of Accident and Emergency Claims
There are a number of ways in which medical negligence in accident and emergency can take form, these include, but are not limited to:
- Lack of experience. While it is understood that practical training is an essential part of the development of a medical professional, this must not come at the expense of the care provided to a patient. Staff undergoing training must be supervised while carrying out their duties to make sure that standards are maintained.
- Due to the nature of injuries that are dealt with in accident & emergency, time management can often mean the difference between life and death. The delay in making a diagnosis or giving treatment means that injuries or illnesses can become worse, or more untreatable. If the delay in treatment or diagnosis was preventable, then it may have been negligent.
- Even professionals who are not under the pressures of working in accident and emergency can find it difficult to diagnosis an injury or illness, which makes the job of an A&E professional even more difficult. The personnel working in these wards, however, have been trained to provide accurate diagnosis under this pressure. If you were misdiagnosed when it was avoidable, you may be entitled to compensation.
