Nursing Mistakes

Nursing Malpractice & Negligence

Also commonly referred to as nursing negligence, nursing malpractice occurs when a nurse fails to properly treat a medical condition, resulting in a new or aggravating a current injury. Nursing malpractice claims may arise when a nurse acts in a manner that would be considered unacceptable when compared to how another nurse with similar training might act. Many people don't realize that doctors aren't the only medical professionals whom patients can sue for malpractice. In fact, most health care providers including chiropractors, therapists, nurses, psychologists and dentists are subject to such legal action. Over the years, nursing responsibilities have grown to include physical examination, diagnosis, and treatment without direct supervision by a physician, therefore, there is increasing accountability for negligent nurses. Just as with a physician, there are certain standards of care applied to nursing. Nurses are expected to act in a manner based on this standard of care. When nurses don't act within these accepted standards of care, they are negligent and guilty of nursing malpractice.

Examples of Nursing Negligence

  • Failure to monitor vital signs
  • Failure to monitor test results
  • Failure to notify or report changes in patient condition
  • Failure to prevent medical complications
  • Failure to prevent patient injury
  • Errors in patient medication
  • Failure to monitor for side effects or complications arising from medications
