Emergency room (ER) medical expert witnesses must be knowledgeable in emergency room procedures and treatments for any type of urgent medical issue. As with any lawsuit related to the field of medicine, the problem may be over a misdiagnosis, an error with healthcare, an unforeseen side effect to medicine and/or surgery, or any other related issue.
Emergency medicine covers a broad range of treatment, emergency room doctors and ER nurses must be knowledgeable in a wide variety of medical issues and procedures, including surgery, surgical nursing, spinal injuries, traumatic brain injury (T.B.I.), burns, and trauma. Emergency room (ER) procedures are also practiced in ambulatory care, which provides emergency medicine on an outpatient basis. Emergency room physicians often have background in internal medicine, emergency medicine, and urgent care, as the fields require thorough knowledge in several different medical disciplines.
Emergency medicine requires a high level of quality assurance regarding standards of care, as treatment must be administered at an urgent pace under intense circumstances, often involving life-threatening ailments or injuries. Experienced and qualified emergency room nurses and doctors can provide expert testimony on emergency medicine procedures, as well as conduct a medical records review for the incident in question.
