Casualty departments deal with millions of patients every year. A& E staff are often faced with having to make instant decisions around a patient’s symptoms in order to expedite treatment.
Any failure to carry out tests, such as x-rays, failing to establish the cause of a patient’s symptoms or to monitor a hospitalised patient, delayed diagnosis and treatment or a misdiagnosis could literally mean the difference between life and death.
Despite their busy work environment, hospital staff have a responsibility to perform their jobs competently, accurately and thoroughly, ensuring that appropriate investigations are conducted in order to make a proper diagnosis and offer treatment.
Sometimes this does not happen and the consequences can be far reaching. In these circumstances we can offer support and advice on making a claim.
