Every year, millions of Americans count on nurses to provide them with quality medical care. We trust that the people who have the skill and knowledge to care for us and expect the highest standard of care during our time of need. Despite strict standards of care that nurses are required to follow, accidents still happen and people are injured or killed as the result of nursing negligence.
Nurses act as the doctor’s eyes and ears. Failure to accurately communicate a patient’s condition to a doctor is a serious form of negligence. Additionally, nurses are in charge of medicating hospitalized patients and nursing home residents. When a nurse misreads a prescription, administers the wrong medication, or gives a patient the wrong dosage, you may have a claim for nursing malpractice. If you have questions about the care you or a loved received by a nurse, an experienced medical malpractice attorney can tell you if you have a nurse malpractice claim.
