Are people without insurance more likely to experience malpractice in the emergency room? We ask Pennsylvania attorney Nancy Winkler for this Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.
You know, I'd like to say that's not the case, but unfortunately, it is the case many, many times. It is very, very important that when a person is seen in the emergency room, that the physicians and the nurses and the medical providers caring for them don't see the patient just as one specific problem that they present with, but really see the whole patient and see everything that they present with, and that's why they're there.
