Many times, emergency room mistakes can be avoided if physicians and staff take a serious look at the patient's symptoms. It is furthermore the responsibility of the hospital to contact the patient's family if a misdiagnosis is discovered. This, unfortunately, did not occur in the case of a young boy who died in Queens last year.
