My family member died after being turned away by the emergency room. Is it still medical malpractice at the time?

The emergency room, like any other medical provider, must provide medical services within a proper standard of care. If someone goes to an emergency room and has a problem, and the problem is not properly investigated and because somebody is too busy, or they just don’t want to see the person, they tell the person to go away and they die or something else happens seriously to that person, that emergency room can be held liable for falling beneath the appropriate standard of care that should be utilized by emergency rooms.
