Nurses must be held to a high standard for patient care

Nurses provide a variety of aspects of care for patients in doctors' offices, emergency rooms, and hospitals. These nurses are often the first people to encounter a patient, and they provide vital information to the doctor regarding the patient's current medical state. Have you ever considered how devastating it could be if a nurse made an error while caring for you?

Sadly, nurses aren't perfect. Even when nurses try their best, they may make errors. These errors can have a devastating effect on your life if they are serious enough. We know that you don't want to suffer the effects of nursing errors and you shouldn't have to.

Consider a situation in which a patient goes to the emergency room with chest pains. If the nurse makes an error while taking vital signs, such as pulse or blood pressure, the nurse might miss some of the signs that would clue the nurse into the fact that the situation is an emergency. If that patient is having a heart attack, the nurse's error might mean a delay in the doctor getting to the patient. That delay could be fatal.

With the changing scope of nursing duties that is occurring, it is vital that nurses be held to a high standard. If you have been injured because a nurse didn't provide care that was at or above the standard of care, you might choose to seek compensation. Our law firm can help you to learn your options for dealing with the nursing errors that negatively impacted your medical care and your health.
