Accident & Emergency (A & E) Departments are often busy environments, and generally the standard of care provided by the treating Doctors and Nurses is excellent. However, mistakes can and do happen.
Those errors can include:
Failure to properly examine or to take a proper clinical history
Not arranging the required tests/investigations (including radiology and blood/urine testing)
Misinterpreting the results of such tests/investigations
Discharging home or to the care of the GP prematurely or in error
As a consequence of mistakes of that nature, required treatment is often not provided, and injuries/illnesses can develop or progress unnecessarily.
