When you are a patient in a hospital, the nurse is your primary caregiver and the health care professional you see most often. Doctors try to come around occasionally but a nurse is always in and out of your room. You see a new nurse after a shift change and then a familiar face returns the next day.

Nurses are a very important part of the medical team at a hospital. They administer medication and regularly check on your well-being. Many nurses are very caring and have excellent bed-side manners.  Most provide excellent health care and are dedicated to our good health.

However, sometimes preventable mistakes happen and a patient is injured. Our firm helps persons who have suffered a serious injury as a result of nursing malpractice. If there was a critical medical error during your hospital stay, our medical experts and lawyers will find it.

What Are Examples of Nursing Malpractice?

Medication Errors

Medication errors are one of the most common types of medical negligence. Distraction is often the cause. Studies have shown that a large percentage of medication errors are due to distraction or a poor and ill-advised effort at multi-tasking. 

FAILURE TO Document

Poor documentation regarding allergies or drug interactions can also lead to medication errors. A lack of stringent rules on excellent documentation causes many preventable injuries. Without strict adherence to high standards of documentation excellency, a patient may not receive proper treatment and suffer from mistakes.

FAILURE TO PREVENT Infections

Many preventable injuries and deaths are caused when a hospital patient becomes infected. If a hospital does not promote the highest standards in hygiene, then patients are the ones to suffer. It does not take long for infections to spread and to affect many patients.
