The Emergency Rooms in IL handle critical and non-critical patients in a fast-paced environment. Emergency room doctors and nurses are trained in triage or put another way trained to the assessment of the seriousness of a medical condition in order to provide prompt care when needed. An incorrect assessment can lead to delayed diagnosis or delayed treatment, which can lead to death.
A Hospitals and Doctors in IL must provide standard of medical care. It is not the standard in IL for a doctor to fail to properly review a patient chart, perform or read tests, not provide necessary treatment. These failures are medical errors on the part of physicians and on the part of hospitals.
