Medical Malpractice of a Nurse

Nursing mistakes occur when a nurse fails to follow the nursing process. In a hospital, nursing home or home health care environment, nurses have a duty and responsibility to:

  • Assess the patient’s condition;
  • Make Nursing Diagnosis related to the patients’ condition;
  • Plan appropriate nursing care related to her assessment and nursing diagnosis;
  • Intervene, when appropriate, if the patient’s condition changes; and
  • Evaluate her nursing care, diagnosis, and nursing interventions and determine if a new nursing plan of care needs to be implemented.

Nursing malpractice or nursing negligence occurs when a nurse fails to act as a reasonably prudent nurse under the same or similar conditions.

Doctors are not the only ones who can be sued for medical malpractice.

Many people do not realize that doctors are not the only potential parties that can be sued for medical malpractice. In fact, nurses, chiropractors, therapists, psychologists and dentists are potential parties to a medical malpractice claim.

  • Failure to monitor vital signs
