Emergency Rooms

Each year, 8.7 million people visit the emergency rooms (ER) in Florida hospitals, but many of these ER visits result in medical malpractice and misdiagnosis. The constant interruptions ER physicians experience are linked to a predisposition to committing medical errors. Researchers found that the average local hospital ER doctor in Miami, Florida may treat as many as 12 patients at once, and interact with up to 101 individuals in a normal 2-hour period. In Florida, the average length of time spent directly with the patient was found to be only 6 minutes in hospitals, as compared to 55 minutes spent on indirect care. These frequent interruptions cause ER physicians to switch tasks and leave tasks incomplete.
