Medical Errors in Nursing
Every single person involved in medical care has the power and the responsibility to do everything possible to help their patients’ health improve – from specialized surgeons to general practice doctors to nurses to equipment technicians. When anyone in this line of work makes an error, the consequences to your health and well-being can be devastating.
This is especially true for nurses who are intimately and regularly involved in each patient’s treatment. While doctors are the ones charged with making official diagnoses and deciding on a course of action, nurses are the ones who interact most often with patients and implement the treatment. There are countless opportunities for a nurse to make a negligent error in a moment of distraction, such as providing the wrong kind or wrong amount of medication, or failing to notice symptoms in a timely manner.
If a nurse’s negligent error has caused you harm, you have a right to seek justice in the form of financial compensation for your injury. At The Gori Law Firm, we are committed to helping you obtain the maximum available compensation.
