While doctors make decisions and orders regarding patients' care, nurses are usually the ones who carry those orders out. In that capacity, they hold patients' very lives in their hands. When a nurse makes an error that should have been avoided, the consequences can be serious or even deadly.
As nurses are asked by budget-conscious hospitals and care facilities to take on ever more responsibility, nursing errors and legal claims against nurses are on the rise. Often, nursing negligence occurs when a nurse fails to adequately monitor or assess a patient, or to communicate critical changes in a patient's condition to the treating physician. Medication errors, in which a nurse administers the wrong medication or the wrong dosage also account for a significant number of nursing malpractice cases.
Patients and their families may be reluctant to hold nurses accountable for their negligence, but it is unfair for innocent injured parties to bear the burden of these avoidable errors. Huegli Fraser PC can help make things right.
