Nursing Injury
Like physicians, nurses are held to a standard of care. In general, nurses need to perform their duties with due care, meaning that they must perform in a manner that is consistent with the manner in which similarly situated nurses would do so. Unfortunately, patients being treated by nurses in and out of the hospital are sometimes injured as a result of a nurse’s failure to follow the standard of care. For example, a nurse may fail to: timely report a change in the patient’s symptoms to a treating physician; administer medication; administer medication in a timely fashion; administer the wrong medication; or may administer the wrong dose of medication. Any of these deviations from the standard of care and others may cause serious injury or death and may give rise to a malpractice lawsuit against the nurse, the physicians who worked with the nurse, the hospital or company that employed the nurse and others.
