Failure to Treat
Hospitals should be equipped with the personnel, facilities, tools, and medical technology that is necessary to attend to the most serious health conditions and life-threatening emergencies. While many hospitals do live up to the demands of their mission, others fail to do so and, in the process, endanger the health and lives of patients.

Dangers of Hospital Inaction
In some cases, doctors fail to treat patients in a timely manner due to the overwhelming demand for healthcare services and the lengthy waits that current emergency room protocols impose. In other instances, they fail to adequately treat patients because they focus solely on one issue and not on others. These medical mistakes can be particularly dangerous when the following are involved:
- Bone fractures that create open wounds
- External bleeding
- Internal bleeding
- Head and brain injuries
